Osama Bin Laden's son in law and one of chief organizers of 9/11 WTC attack has been captured in Jordan by US Intel. He was passing through on his way from Turkey to Kuwait.

In other news the final cardinal has arrived in Rome. Cardinal Jean-Baptiste Pham Minh Man arrived today from Vietnam to join with the 114 others who will soon be selecting the new Pope.
I wonder if Pham brought any nuoc mam along.

Okay, let's use some logic.
If the drone program existed and the president told Gibbs to deny it existed, what would that be called based on your understanding of a lie?
After six years of kowtowing to the White House, Congress is finally challenging President Bush’s campaign to trample all legal and constitutional restraints on his power.

Congressional committees have issued subpoenas for documents and witnesses in two major cases and have asked for the first — and likely not the last — criminal investigation of an executive branch official who might have lied to Congress.

Predictably, the White House is claiming executive privilege and refusing to cooperate with the legitimate Congressional investigations, one springing from Mr. Bush’s decision to spy on Americans without a warrant and the other from the purge of United States attorneys.

A low-level flunky like the press secretary should not have knowledge of any programs that must be hidden from the public.

McCain, Graham rebuke Sen. Paul for filibuster over drones

The senator "should know better," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said, arguing that some of the concerns raised about drone missile attacks on Americans -- like Paul's suggestion that the U.S. could have killed Jane Fonda when she went to North Vietnam -- were "ridiculous."

"To my Republican colleagues, I don't remember any of you coming down here suggesting that President Bush was going to kill anybody with a drone," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in remarks on the Senate floor.

Graham displayed a sign that showed the number of Americans killed in the U.S. by Al Qaeda -- 2,958 -- versus the number killed by drones, which is zero.

Your reasoing is quite racist. oscumma spent more money in one term than any president in history, including two termers. Our credit is tanking. The economy is the most unstable I've ever seen in decades. Much worse than the Carter years. The current president is unwilling to compromise on spending which has caused this sequester. Rather than take cuts from all the wasteful areas in government, oscumma chooses to impact people with the intention it will hurt Republicans. The fact this scumbag is intentionally hurting American citizens is despicable. Race has absolutely nothing to do with it. Liberals, including the scumbag prez has made it very clear they are exploiting the race card for their own personal gain.

House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday applauded President Obama's outreach to Republicans, which included dinner with a group of Republican Senators Wednesday night and an upcoming visit with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), calling it a "hopeful sign" during a press conference Thursday.

He said he expected that sequestration and the president's upcoming trip to the Middle East would probably be discussed when Obama visits with House Republicans, likely to take place sometime next week.

Boehner said he did not feel like Obama is "going around me" by meeting with other Republicans.

You're too stupid to understand insults, That's what allows you to come here and behave as a complete airhead!!

And you're too ignorant to know that the Model T Ford was followed by the Model A Ford.

Proof positive of your overwhelming ignorance!!

""In 1908, Ford offered an improved car that became the Model T. Then, in 1928, Ford started the alphabet again with the Model A to symbolize that the new Model A had no connection to the Model T."

So, The Model T begat the Model A.

And I'm still laughing at your stupidity!!

Or are you still stupidly insisting that Ford built no cars after 1928, the lie that Leo trapped you in last evening??

We all know you're more than dumb enough to do so!!

Give it up, Dood. You're dumber than a stump and everyone sees it but you!!

Rand Paul's Filibuster Belittled By John McCain As 'Simply False'

""WASHINGTON -- One of the Senate's leading hawks, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), took to the Senate floor Thursday to fire back at Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), saying the Kentuckian's rant against extrajudicial drone killings was "simply false."

Quoting extensively from a Wall Street Journal editorial that mocked Paul, McCain also argued that Paul had belittled the growing use of drones to kill terrorism suspects by invoking the name of Jane Fonda and suggesting a drone could have killed her when she was a Vietnam War protester.

Paul took to the floor Wednesday for nearly 13 hours, hoping to pressure the White House to declare whether or not it might use a drone to strike an American citizen in the United States.

McCain, a former Vietnam prisoner of war, was not impressed.

"I watched some of that, quote, debate, unquote, yesterday," McCain said. "I saw colleagues who know better come to the floor and voice some of this same concern, which is totally unfounded.

"I must say that the use of Jane Fonda's name does evoke certain memories with me, and I must say that she is not my favorite American. But I also believe that, as odious as it was, Ms. Fonda acted within her constitutional rights, and to somehow say that someone who disagrees with American policy -- and even may demonstrate against it -- is somehow a member of an organization which makes that individual an enemy combatant is simply false," McCain said, hitting his lectern for emphasis. "It is simply false."

McCain said it was "ridiculous" and "a stretch of the imagination" to "allege or infer that the President of the United States is going to kill somebody like Jane Fonda, or somebody who disagrees with the policies."

The Wall Street Journal editorial he quoted was even more scathing, declaring, "Give Rand Paul credit for theatrical timing, as a snow storm descended on Washington. The filibuster filled the attention void on Twitter and cable TV. If only his reasoning matched the showmanship."

The editorial also complained that Paul should not be shocked that the United States might kill a citizen by drone strike within its own borders, arguing that the Obama administration is well within its rights to kill enemies of the country, wherever they may be.

Paul has vigorously opposed the growing use of drones by the administration, saying the strikes violate due process guaranteed under the Constitution and permit the president to act as judge, jury and executioner.""

I really enjoy the Civil War raging within the Republiclown Party!!

Obama doesn't need to try to destroy the Republiclowns, they're doing the job all by themselves!!
