Obama Ready to Quit On Afghanistan; Can’t Assure Economic Recovery; Will Ask For $750 Billion More

“President Obama declared in an interview that the United States was not winning the war in Afghanistan and opened the door to a reconciliation process in which the American military would reach out to moderate elements of the Taliban, much as it did with Sunni militias in Iraq.”

“That plan rested on the assumption that the economy would shrink by 1.2 percent this year, a projection that many economists, including some in his administration, consider overly optimistic because it implies the economy would bounce back in the second half of this year.”

Osama Bin Laden NOT Found, Intelligence Community Warns of Oversimplicity

Despite a recent article published in the New York Times, Osama Bin Laden has NOT been found.

“‘What we have attempted to demonstrate is that it is possible to narrow down where Osama bin Laden is by ruling out where he is unlikely to be.'”

“What’s more, the geographers’ paper suffers from a classic data-crunching problem: garbage in, garbage out. In this paper’s case, the trash includes some hoary urban myths about Osama. First, the professors accept as fact that bin Laden requires a kidney dialysis machine. That means he must need to be close to an electrical grid or generator, the UCLA pair reason. Too bad the thing is complete folklore — debunked again and again.”
