Oh, there you are, son, your stepfather and me been looking everywhere for you. Now I know you have these episodes from time to time but I just wanted to find you and let you know that I spoke with the Sheriff and he says you can come back home if you agree to put the ankle monitor back on. Please just do it, son, and don't make a big fuss, my old heart couldn't stand no more trouble, and Earl'd kill you, you know that.

I carried you for 8 months, borned you, and raised you as best I could, son, and I mean to see it through to the end no matter how painful. But do you suppose you could spare a thought for me and Earl once in a while? And your step-sister, Emmy, asked about you too, she says she recognized your picture on America's Most Wanted, ha ha, I told her it couldn't've been you cause nobody but me ever wanted you.

DB, honey, you had it all. Don't you remember? You was the smartest child in Sunday School. Whenever Pastor Henry - it's Henrietta now, son, I thought you'd best hear it from me - whenever Pastor Henry used to shout out, "Do y'all believe?" You were the first one to shout back the right answer over and over! I was so proud. It did get a little repetitive sometimes but time has a way of smoothing over that sort of stuff.

I knew that woman was trouble, DB, now don't shush me, I got a right to speak my mind, son. That woman was trash and she still is and she done you dirt, DB, plain and simple. You were right to go off like you did, clear your head, take a little time to get things straight again. But folks're asking questions, hon, and, since you're not here to answer them, and since you only ever got the one answer for just about everything, they're starting to guess their own answers might be the right ones. You're embarrassing me, honey. I bought the Karlson's a new sheep and a goat, but that don't stop them talking about it every darned day.

Come back soon, son, we love you and miss you. I hope this letter finds you well, and God Bless.

Love,

Mama and Earl

Why not take out Castro with a drone now?

There's a quote often attributed to Allen Dulles after it was noted that the final 1964 report of the Warren Commission on the assassination of JFK contained dramatic inconsistencies. Those inconsistencies, in effect, disproved the Commission's own final conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone on November 22, 1963. Dulles, a career spy, Wall Street lawyer, the CIA director whom JFK had fired after the 1961 Bay of Pigs fiasco - and the Warren Commission member who took charge of the investigation and final report - is reported to have said, "The American people don't read."

Some Americans do read. So do Europeans and Asians and Africans and Latin Americans.

OK. So, enhanced interrogation is OK as long as we don't know about it.

The Armed Services Committee’s Bizarre Priorities

Gene Healy observes that the Armed Services Committee ignored its oversight responsibilities last week:

Eight hours of questioning by the Senate Armed Services Committee allowed plenty of bloviating, grandstanding and browbeating — but, apparently, not enough time for serious deliberation over key policy questions facing any new Pentagon chief.

On Thursday, Buzzfeed.com tallied up the issues the committee prioritized. In a hearing transcript running to nearly 60,000 words, the word “drone” doesn’t show up even once.

Regardless of what one thinks about Hagel’s nomination, this is what should bother everyone about the spectacle that unfolded last Thursday. Committee members had the opportunity to scrutinize the administration’s conduct of an ongoing foreign war, its use of drones, and its handling of relationships with allies and clients. All of this received cursory treatment when it was brought up at all. Israel received far more attention from members of both parties than the country where U.S. soldiers are still fighting. As Brandon Friedman put it:

It’s difficult to interpret this message any other way: the Senate Armed Services Committee—particularly its Republican membership—is more concerned with the apparent American defense secretary’s relationship with Israel than with the future of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the fate of U.S. troops engaged in both locations.

No matter what your views on Israel or the U.S.-Israel relationship are, that reflects a bizarre and dangerous set of priorities.

A semi-competent opposition would have used the occasion for oversight instead of wasting time parsing old reports and Al Jazeera interviews to try to catch Hagel in an ideological error. A sane confirmation process would have required that almost all of the committee’s time be spent finding out how well the nominee understood issues relevant to the department he would be managing. Instead, the vast majority of the committee’s time was wasted on ideological litmus tests that served no useful purpose, and the interests of the American public, our military, and the country were all short-changed in the process.

World events since the attacks of September 11, 2001 have not only been predicted, but also planned, orchestrated and - as their architects would like to believe - controlled. The current Central Asian war is not a response to terrorism, nor is it a reaction to Islamic fundamentalism. It is in fact, in the words of one of the most powerful men on the planet, the beginning of a final conflict before total world domination by the United States leads to the dissolution of all national governments. This, says Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member and former Carter National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, will lead to nation states being incorporated into a new world order, controlled solely by economic interests as dictated by banks, corporations and ruling elites concerned with the maintenance (by manipulation and war) of their power. As a means of intimidation for the unenlightened reader who happens upon this frightening plan - the plan of the CFR - Brzezinski offers the alternative of a world in chaos unless the U.S. controls the planet by whatever means are necessary and likely to succeed.

DEMOCRATS ARE ADVISED BY A man who operates with precision and mastery in the dialogue of public policy decision making is Zbigniew Brzezinski; former National Security Advisor to President Carter (a Democrat), co-founder of the Tri-lateral Commission and registered Republican. In his now infamous book titled The Grand Chessboard, published in 1997, Brzezinski laid out the geo-strategic importance of the Middle East and Central Asia as being the regions where the next major global conflict(s) would take place. In this book Brzezinski says the “imperial mobilization” necessary to commandeer the world’s remaining hydrocarbon reserves would be hard to embark upon without a catastrophic and catalyzing event on par with Pearl Harbor.
A group of men who call themselves the “neo-cons” took up Brzezinski’s chessboard and created The Project for a New American Century (PNAC). In 2000 these men took the Whitehouse. The neo-cons also recognized that a “catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor,” would benefit their dreams of imperial mobilization. Well, the new Pearl Harbor they all publicly prayed for came and went, and just as they had predicted, it helped to speed up the process of American imperial mobilization.
But now Brzezinski is singing a much different tune. When Israel embarked on its failed war in Southern Lebanon, Brzezinski publicly stated the following on numerous occasions:
These neocon prescriptions, of which Israel has its equivalents, are fatal for America and ultimately for Israel. They will totally turn the overwhelming majority of the Middle East’s population against the United States. The lessons of Iraq speak for themselves. Eventually, if neo-con policies continue to be pursued, the United States will be expelled from the region and that will be the beginning of the end for Israel as well.
Brzezinski publicly voiced this strong opinion on July 20, 2006 – about one week after Israel invaded Lebanon – at The New American Foundation American Strategy Program, where Daniel Yergin sits on the Board of Directors.

That is only the case if the suspects were gone. In the event of a robbery or break in where the suspects are still there, they do respond immediately.

According to this 1998 interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, the CIA's intervention in Afghanistan preceded the 1979 Soviet invasion. This decision of the Carter Administration in 1979 to intervene and destabilise Afghanistan is the root cause of Afghanistan's destruction as a nation.

But say, Homer, wouldn't you be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the world from a threat like Iran?
Then again, I would have been willing to die to save just one child from Saddam's torture rooms.
Maybe we're just different in that way - believing in a higher and nobler cause.
Is there anything you would be willing to die for? Just curious.
There would be a number of things I'm willing to die for; however, it's difficult to think of any I would be willing to kill for...almost always ends badly (ask Marcus Brutus)
