Thought for the Day
Thoughts on the decade.....
I guess any decade that begins with the sham of Bush v. Gore....

The "16 words" on Iran
This claim seems a pretty unbelievable bit of "intelligence" as it seems impossible for me to believe that the two could clandestinely transfer 1,350 tons of uranium without anyone noticing. It's not like the US and Israel aren't watching both Iran and all the major uranium producers.
The report was drawn up by a member nation of the International Atomic Energy Agency and provided Tuesday to the AP on condition that the country not be identified because of the confidential nature of the information.
(PS. The "intel" is so weak they had to "leak" to the AP? NYTimes and WaPo wouldn't bite?)
Thought for the Day
President Bush was not to blame for 9/11, 19 hijackers, some on the watch list, in the US for months, attending flight schools, and hijacking four planes out of major US airports. (Bin Laden determined to strike US.)

Party of No
An alleged attempt to blow up a transatlantic flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas would be all-consuming for the administrator of the Transportation Security Administration -- if there were one..
Instead, the post remains vacant because Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) has held up President Obama's nominee in an effort to prevent TSA workers from joining a labor union.

The Palin's prep for their Jerry Springer appearance
Here's hoping it stays open.
I mean, how many attempts have they plotted and how many airliners have they blown up?
(And yes, they may someday succeed, but, at this point, I'm counting five failed "plots" in a row.)
Later: Including 9/11, "Therefore, the odds of being on given departure which is the subject of a terrorist incident have been 1 in 10,408,947 over the past decade. By contrast, the odds of being struck by lightning in a given year are about 1 in 500,000. This means that you could board 20 flights per year and still be less likely to be the subject of an attempted terrorist attack than to be struck by lightning."
"Somebody in our government said to me in Sana'a, the capital of Yemen, Iraq was yesterday's war. Afghanistan is today's war. If we don't act preemptively, Yemen will be tomorrow's war," Lieberman said, during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday". "That's the danger we face."
(PS. Anyone want to ask enthusiastic Iraq war supporter Lieberman why Afghanistan wasn't the day before yesterday's war?)
Still on holiday
So, light blogging for the next couple of days. Be back soon.
