No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

One of the main headlines through the weekend was that the CIA had held secrets from Congress and that Vice President, Dick Cheney was responsible for the “cover up.”  After 3 or 4 days of hyperventilating about “another Cheney cover up,” we now get information about what was “covered up:

The Central Intelligence Agency had a secret plan to capture or kill Al-Qaeda operatives

Oh my gosh noooooooo!  Tell me it isn’t sooooooooo!  We were actually planning to kill or capture Al-Qaeda and Dick Cheney made sure the CIA didn’t tell anyone?

Leon Panetta was so outraged by the program that he immediately terminated the program.

Leon, have you covered this program with President Obama?

President Obama ‘orders Pakistan drone attacks’

If not, you may want to think about doing so:

US drone attack kills 45 militants in Pakistan, officials say

A suspected US drone killed at least 45 Pakistani Taliban militants on Tuesday when it struck after a funeral of an insurgent commander killed earlier in the day, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

‘Cause someone ain’t getting the message!
