Brits Officials Can't Get Obama Folks on Phone, U.S. Media Not Picking Up Either ^

Posted on 03/11/2009 6:06:18 AM PDT by chessplayer

If the snub of British PM Gordon Brown at the hands of President Obama and his wife weren't enough, now British Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O'Donnell is saying that Downing Street is finding it "unbelievably difficult" to get hold of officials from Obama's administration. British officials can't seem to ever get past the administration's answer machines as they call here to try and coordinate plans for the coming G20 summit.

He’s trying to do it all instead of counting on talented people around him. That’s a recipe for disaster.

I think it's just the opposite, Obamah has never managed anything in real life. ..he's just a big talker.

To get things done, he has to rely up others, then takes their credit.

That woman ought to be a line backer, not first lady.

Agree with your assessment. Problem is, he may have clever people but not necessarily smart or learned ones, advising him. He and his adminstration are walking disaster. Thank goodness he kept Gates on, can you image if the SecDef were one of his choosing???

Many but not all Brits!

Still some common sense over this side of the pond - though sometimes it’s hard to credit! Lol.

Wonder if this article has any influence on the situation....

British colonial forces accused of terror tactics in Kenya
February 7 2005-Kenyans who fought in the Mau Mau rebellion have taken the British government to court for alleged humans rights abuses. Their application reflects the fluidity of the concept of terrorsim. While the colonial government referred to the Mau Mau as ‘terrorists’ in the 1950s, the Kenyan Mau Mau Trust has now delivered a dossier to the British High Commission in Nairobi, entitled “Kenya: White Terror”. More than 200 000 Kenyan freedom fighters were detained in camps in a bid to force them to abandon their nationalist goals in the 1950s. The dossier catalogues instances of torture and murder by British soldiers and locals under their command. Other documented atrocities in the report include castration and blinding of defiant captives, as well as fatal whippings and r ape by British soldiers. The report is based on more than 6000 depositions alleging numerous cases of human rights abuse. This is the third time Kenya is seeking reparations from the British government for atrocities committed during British colonial rule.

They need to cancel the “G20 Summit” and publish the reason why.

Does anyone know if this has been addressed with Gibbs at a presser? Why is it that talk radio and websites are the only place I hear about this. Did Katie wonder????

“...but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed...”
