Soldier faces hearing at Afghan base over suicide
Associated Press – (Wall Street Journal) – KABUL, Afghanistan – January 15, 2012 – An American soldier charged with abuse that led to the suicide of a 19-year-old fellow soldier in Afghanistan is facing a preliminary hearing Sunday on a base in the country, the military said.
The hearing came as two more members of the international force in Afghanistan died of what NATO described as “non-battle-related” injuries.
“Don’t blow smoke up my ass” about what a military platform can do and when it will be ready, Schwartz told a tense and silent ballroom filled with defense industry executives. “There’s no time for it. There’s no patience for it. OK?” –Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz
ROBERT KAHN – February 11, 2011 – “May you live in interesting times” is supposed to be an ancient Chinese proverb – though no one has ever proved that, and Westerners don’t know whether it’s supposed to be a blessing or a curse.
We live in interesting times, but am I the only one who feels that the rest of the world is missing the point?
Take Wikileaks and Julian Assange.
I, for one, do not care how Julian Assange has sex, nor with whom he has it. Nor do I see what Julian Assange’s sex life has to do with the 251,287 diplomatic cables from U.S. Embassies around the world that have embarrassed O so many people, and may have contributed to the revolution in Egypt.
What I wonder is why the U.S. Army allowed a private, first class, to get his hands on a quarter of a million classified cables, so he could slip them to Mr. Assange.
Doesn’t that seem a more interesting question, for U.S. national security and all, than what Julian Assange did with the condom? (Click HERE for article)
