Is this the reason that a story linking President Hamid Karzai’s brother Ahmed Wali Karzai, to the C.I.A.’s payroll was leaked to the press? Not a frontal attack of President Karzai himself; but an end run using his brother.
Is this why the administration is delaying their decision “currently under review” on troop strength augmentation increases? Have they been trying to come up with a ploy and are they giving the story time to fester and allow the righteous indignation of the public to seemingly make the decision for them?
Who knows at this point? Ask yourself if this trick will work on you?
Think about it!

I spent some time in Wyoming as my last post relates to since then I have been consumed keeping up with the goings on around the world. I will fess up that I have NOT been anywhere engaged in the Health Scare debate. Until such time as they really have a bill that looks like it is seriously “the Bill”; I see no real reason to follow the discussion very closely.
I have been hotly engaged in writing the story “Roomin’ with Dutch”. This has consumed much of my days. But don’t fret; it is just about complete.
I do think we have been let down by our representation in Washington and fully recommend that we get rid of them all. We should replace every one of them: lock, stock and barrel. Vote them all out. I do understand that we just might get rid of a good’n here and there; but I think the price we would incur from that is nowhere near the message that needs very desperately to be sent to the representation – we have to get serious.
I encourage everyone who reads this to continually post on twitter or anywhere you feel worthwhile the following messages. They are exactly the appropriate length and send the exact message we need to get through to all concerned.
TURN OUT EVERY Member of Congress running for election in Nov 2010. They aren’t doing the job and should go. Vote ‘em out; send the message!
DO NOT RE-ELECT ANY CURRENT Member of Congress running in Nov 2010. They aren’t doing the job and should go. Vote ‘em out; send the message!
Wouldn’t it be great to check twitter and find “TURN OUT” or “DO NOT RE-ELECT” to be in the top ten trending posts every day?
The two most important happenings going on today, other than our economic recovery, are the situations in Iran and Afghanistan. These two areas will drive the real news for the next year quite possibly without some huge break in the status quos.
