buenas tardes a todos!

me too!!

The Guardian is claiming some botched attempt in Kenya as an example of Cheney's secret program.

To quote Hillary : "I don't recall"


And with the Obama CIA, it will end up being 24 weeks, and a mushroom cloud over NYC.


BB, How could one botch Kenya anymore than it's already botched?

Besides, does anyone remember those little embassy bombings? I doubt the Kenyans would object to snuffing out a few of those barbarians.

Panetta's insistence on briefing Congress about, and then canceling a program that was never started smells like a partisan political gambit. I can't see how politicizing the CIA could be a good thing.


Well the CIA is acquainted with the concept of disinfo.

Sounds as if the Henry Wallace faction of Obama's supporters need to be fed, so that Panetta and Holder are throwing them some red meat. Unfortunately, the Henry Wallace faction is never sated. And even more unfortunately, Obama appears to be the leader of that faction.


Can we merge the Panetta thread with the wanking thread?


I am guessing that it was the "cornpone Arlen" who stuck his hand in Brooks' inner thigh.




Yahoo has up one of the dumbest questions I have ever read.

"The CIA's secret program. Why wasn't Panetta informed?"

By now it should be obvious to every American; Panetta can/will not keep a secret.

One might just as well tell it outright to the NYTs and cut out the middle man.

I'm guessing that Brooks was fantasizing.



Boy I've been thinking about you a lot lately.

How are you doing?


This is too funny -- Ogabe's teleprompter broke! Thank God for redundancy, although the patented tennis match head swiveling must have stopped.

Quote from ABC News via Drudge:Midway through his speech on urban and metropolitan policy in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building this afternoon, one of his two small glass prompters came crashing down, hitting the wood floor and crashing in many pieces. It made quite a ruckus.

“Oh, goodness,” a startled President Obama said. “Sorry about that, guys.”

He then proceeded on with his remarks, “To pull our economy back from the brink, including the largest and most sweeping economic recovery plan in our nation's history…”

For the rest of the speech the president relied on the one remaining teleprompter, to his right, and notes on his podium to finish his speech


OT: U.S. Drilling Activity Falls Nearly 50% from a Year Ago

"The U.S. drilling decline that began last quarter in connection with the current downturn in economic activity has continued in earnest in the second quarter of 2009 as companies proceed with caution in an uncertain year," said Hazem Arafa, director of API's statistics department.

Anyone care to read between the lines of that quote?


windandsea! I've been wondering about you, too. Hope all is well.


Yes you shut down every avenue for domestic development, our "esteemed" Senator Nelson,
actually threatened to filibuster the tiny option for Eastern Gulf drilling; there's a
reason why I think of him as a 'space cadet'

Even teleprompters cannot stand this much carp. Is it the first documented teleprompter suicide?

There is a good reason that Leon is where he is. Sandy "seltzer down his pants" Berger was not available, although he will have his security clearance back soon enough. What a world...

Not. Funny.


So the left is going after Ricci personally now. What a class act they are.

Requiem for a teleprompter. Very funny comments. at Michelle Malkin.

Another triumph of Obama diplomacy eliminates the need for such Neanderthals as Jack Bauer and that lying, duplicitous CIA.


For anyone wanting a little TOTUS humor--here are tweets from BOTeleprompter.


After reading a bit of how the Russkies treated Zero while he was in country--I can say that for the first time in my life I'm proud of my Russian heritage:)

 Instapundit an hour or so back had a link at the top of his blog to Sarah Palin's OP-ed in t he h

Personally I am sick of 24/7 speak so if we revert to 12/7 (or any other septigenially difracted quadrigenial for that matter) I am a big fan of this improvement.

12 as you know is a COMPOSITE NUMBER, the smallest number with exactly six divisors, its proper divisors being 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6. Twelve is also of the form p2q; a square prime.

24 , on the other hand, is a SEMIPERFECT NUMBER. It is the smallest number with exactly eight divisors: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24. It is a HIGHLY COMPOSITE number, having more divisors than any smaller number. Adding up all the proper divisors of 24 except 4 and 8 gives 24, hence 24 is a SEMIPERFECT NUMBER!!!

Let me repeat that: 24 is a SEMI-PERFECT Number!...And as they say in non-Euclidean Geometry, "You can lead a horse to fractal equiviocations but you can't make 'em drink."

To each his own I suppose. Gad.
