Well well, is THIS part of the reason Zero wanted Mubarak gone NOW.

I think we are going to see many more reports like this showing the duplicity of this Administration. Wan’t this about the time the media began their attacks on Patreaus?

I don't know so much about that.

ONE thing I'm certain is that the magnitude of information available to Hillary has squelched her shrill liberal mouth.

One thing I've pondered over the last few months concerns her personal feelings contrasted to her being a Goldwater-girl back in the day (before she drank some cool-aide).

All of my wandering-eyes inquire: where is the indomitable Obama policy?

What Foreign Policy?

Obama is far too parochial for anything as complex as foreign policy.
