Putin At It Again

Russian President Vladimir Putin is showing signs of delusion again, this time by comparing U.S. policies to that of Nazi Germany.   I don’t know who he reminds me of most, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, or Kim Jong Ill? 

The comments were the latest in a series of sharply worded Russian criticisms of the foreign policy of the United States — on Iraq, missile defense, NATO expansion and, more broadly, United States unilateralism in foreign affairs.

 This guy is going the wrong way on a one way street.

Leakers Found Guilty

Great Britain shows that it has a pair, and that it takes the leaking of state secrets seriously.  In Keogh (L) and O'Connorthis country they give awards for leaking state secrets.  

This is an area that Bush hasn’t put enough emphasis, nearly zero.  And this is an area that apparently can only be restarted by Bush’s direct intervention, otherwise republicans and/or democrats would not have let the investigation just end by quitting.  Where’s the media on this? The investigation into the CIA leaks that were published in the New York Times has been called off because; the CIA doesn’t want to cooperate with the FBI, so the FBI says eh!, we can’t do an investigation because they don’t want to be investigated, so I guess the investigation is over.  And this makes sense to who?

As for the two Brits. . .

A civil servant and an MP’s researcher have been found guilty of breaching the Official Secrets Act.
They leaked an “extremely sensitive” memo about talks on Iraq between Tony Blair and President Bush.

Oh boy, two new books coming out.  Or to put it another way, you’ll read about it in their books before you’ll see news of this pair in the mainstream media.

Terrorists Nabbed, HERE

FBI gets six terrorists before they could make a surprise attack on Fort Dix.  Maybe by coincidence, all six are Muslims. No Buddhists, no Christians, no Jews, no whatever else.

Can we know if the Patriot Act played a role in bringing this terrorist cell down?  Sen. Joe Biden would like to know.

Nobody, not even Joe Biden, denies that terrorist cells like this one exist in this country.  And yet, people like Joe Biden want to kill the patriot act, and use the way-back machine to go back to a pre-9/11 mentality on security and defense.  In light of what happened today, I don’t think we’re ready to put down our guard just yet.
