    [QUOTE=j-mac;1063325816]Not to mention what Maggie already pointed out...Where's the accountability?
    Who will get fired for this? Anyone?[
    /QUOTE]




    Who would you like to see fired?

    Guess what? It ain't going to happen.

    Who got fired over the Plame kerfuffle?

    If Bush looks like Einstein to you, you might want to get your glasses checked.

    Plame wasn't "outted" because she wasn't a covert agent.

    The CIA said that her covert status was voided when she married an ambassador.

    There have been no real talks in a long time.....since the election I believe.....it is a major issue here and leads the news as Canada has a large "Peacekeeping" role there now. And with the heavy casualties, heaviest per capita in the war, we took, there is great sensitivity here. The concern is that the US will do what it always does and leave with the job half done.

    But, please indicate anything more than speculation that Obama was even trying for a meeting, it looks like pure self promotion from here.

    If a Secret Service agent accidentally shot the president, the agent shouldn't get fired?

    I understand why Libbos are so eager to defend incompetance, but c'mon!
