I can't have it yet. So let's talk Iraq. This is from Press TV:
"I believe that if the government of Iraq and the people of Iraq desire engagement with NATO in the future, that can be possible," AFP quoted Locklear as saying to the reporters at the end of an Iraqi police exercise at Camp Dublin, near Baghdad.
Tell me again when that Iraq War is going to end?
At The Moderate Voice, Robert Stein notes today:
The people at PBS have a twisted sense of humor, pairing for a Wikileaks deep-dish discussion Zbigniew Brzezinski, who helped Jimmy Carter arm the Afghans we’re now fighting, and Stephen Hadley, who put the claim about Iraq’s nuclear material into Bush’s 2003 State of the Union.
So that's him and C.I. who've called it out. This is C.I. from the November 30th snapshot:
In full on Media of the Absurd, The NewsHour (PBS) 'explored' the issues last night by having Judy Woodruff speak to (I am not making this up and link has text, video and audio) with Zbigniew Brzezinski and Stephen Hadley. Hadley, of course, still hopes that the cover story on the outing of Valerie Plame holds. Strangely, Hadley had much to say to reporters about how the leak of Valerie Plame wasn't really a story. For some reason, Judy didn't bring any of that up. Brzezinski maay be the most Castro hating official to serve any administration and that might be his tombstone note had he not been the 'genius' that turned Afghanistan into a quagmire that became the Taliban. That's right, he should be on trial for War Crimes but instead PBS thought we needed to know that he was against WikiLeaks. By the way, if The NewsHour is going to be played on NPR stations --and it now is -- and they want to remember the war dead, they need to name the fallen. Showing pictures and displaying text onscreen? Doesn't play on the radio. Not at all. It's so obvious you wonder how they could be so stupid? Then you remember, they booked Stephen Hadley to talk about leaks. To catch how The NewsHour should have covered the WikiLeaks release but didn't, check out Marco Werman (PRI's The World) discussion with Le Monde's Sylvie Kauffman. Sam Dagher (Wall St. Journal) and Leila Fadel (Washington Post) cover the WikiLeaks release in terms of Iraq and US fears of Iranian influence.
