In The Washington Free Beacon Matthew Continetti says, “foreign policy crises are metastasizing…And the United States is clueless. Its political class is reeling after its most celebrated general in decades resigned from his post as CIA director when the FBI exposed his affair with a journalist.”
Unlike scandals that bring down blowhard politicians, this one’s no fun for Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt. He gives an impressive account of the service of generals Petraeus and Allen.
The FBI agent who sent Tampa socialite Jill Kelley a shirtless photo is Fredrick Humphries. He is one of Kelley’s many manly friends. Kelley made a call to Humphries which set off the FBI investigation that revealed David Petraeus’ secret love affair with Paula Broadwell, as well as making General John Allen squirm.
Humphries’ lawyer says the bare chested picture his client emailed Kelley years ago has nothing to do with the investigation. He wasn’t hitting on her. It was sent as part of a joke. Here’s the picture with a story in the Seattle Times.
Crap! I already drew the cartoon. Lucky for me, my friend, American Spectator columnist Andrew Wilson, says to go with it - ”it captures the reality of unseeing, uncaring and stupendously stupid behavior in response to brewing evil”. Ok.
I wonder if Putin knows her.
J Edgar Hoover must be rolling over in his evening gown.
Governor Romney followed President Obama’s lead on foreign policy during much of the presidential debate Monday night. The president seemed dismayed by this, especially when Mitt stepped on his toes on the issue of “daylight between the U.S. and Israel”.
I was dismayed to miss Monday Night Football and game 7 of the NLCS.
Going into tonight’s debate, Obama is mired in troubles (I couldn’t cram in Fast and Furious, Afghan police killing American troops, or the coverup of the Benghazi attacks ), yet he leads in the polls, and Republicans are hammering Romney!
If you’ve got half an hour to blow, here’s an entertaining and angry speech by Pat Caddell, former pollster for Jimmy Carter.
Osama bin Laden is dead and al Qaeda is on the run…well…running through burning American embassies where it tortures and drags off dead ambassadors.
The UN General Assembly opened in New York on Monday. The Celebrity of the United States went there for serious talks with the world leaders of The View. He appeared with his wife, Michelle (airbrushed out of the image above), and quipped,”I’ve been told I’m eye candy here“. No, really, he did. I think it came from the same teleprompter voice that told him, “Harry, I have a gift”.
Victor Davis Hanson has a piece called The Fantasy House of Barack Obama. I recommend it to you.
