political shorts

  • I should hope CITGO's and Chavez's actions embarass U.S. oil firms, because they bloody well should be embarassed.
  • CIA shifts prisoners from Europe to N.Africa. Not sure how I feel about this move, but the Geneva Convention is the bottom line here, and openly denying mistreating prisoners ain't the answer, especially against the backdrop of changing policy.
  • "Brutal, Indifferent, Scornful, Ruthless"...but America is allowed to do this because it is America, or hadn't you heard this obvious circular justification before? To those that think using a Nobel acceptance speech isn't the proper forum for this type of commentary, its his moment in the sun, he's entitled to use it as he sees fit.
  • That makes me feel so much better. This guy is beyond belief, literally.
