    Debra Burlingame, the sister of Charles “Chic” Burlingame (pilot of the plane that crashed into the Pentagon) met with President Obama today, along with other families who were victims of 9/11. Burlingame said she confronted Obama about Attorney General Eric Holder prosecuting the men who interrogated KSM, which may have produced intelligence leading us to bin Laden.
    Burlingame describes the encounter with Obama: “As a former attorney I know you can’t tell the Attorney General what to do, he said, ‘No, I can’t.’ But I said ‘we — that shouldn’t stop you from giving your opinion. We wouldn’t be here today if they hadn’t done their jobs. Can’t you at least give them your opinion.’ And he said ‘no I won’t,’ and he turned around and walked away.”

    What a snotty little prick. You’d think Mr. Big could show a little compassion and sympathy. But no, it’s all about him and he won’t tolerate any disagreement. I mean, who does this woman think she is? Why she’s a nobody. She can’t tell him what she really thinks and he sure as hell won’t bother himself to explain his position to her.

    Don't worry. Looks like he will be a single termer just like Jimmy Carter. He is riding a temporary high, based on a raid that depended on policies that he has actively opposed. That's why they had tried in vain to suppress the connection between enhanced interrogation and the raid. Just like activists who oppose killing animals under any circumstances, but enjoy having steak dinners, and won't admit their steak comes from cows.

    Something that I couldn't quite put my finger on Sunday during the short speech by Obama, that kind of bothered me a little bit, but I was too consumed by the news itself to think much about, was noticed by others. Did either of you notice this and if so were you just a bit bothered by it?

    "Let’s start with that speech Sunday night. It was originally announced for 10:30 but didn’t happen until 11:30. By that time, the news Obama was supposed to be breaking had broken already. Not the best start. Presumably he was delayed arguing with his speechwriters about keeping in all the “I,” “Me,” and “Mine.” Everything having to do with this raid was “I”; anything that could be attributed to the Bush administration was “We.” “I gave the order, I did this, I did that.” The hallmark of any great leader is a willingness to bravely take credit for the hard work and sacrifice of others"
