    The bad news is.....they walked away from another parliamentary meeting with no other to be set up until August. Which means things will stand as they are. As for the rest.....the Iraqis are digging in.
    Morning. I try to gauge what the typical American is reading on a daily basis by popping in google news and yahoo news. It freaks me out.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

The politicians and public are also acting as if this were surprising Germany being the reliable friend it has always been and proof that they must re-gauge the US relationship.

    Well looks like we will be having some problems going forward. As it is clear now they wont be trust to much of what BO has to say. Moreover the incompetence by this administration is just staggering.

    With many other Leaders Openly mocking him and his team.....should be a sign to the GOP leadership and what Needs to be done.

    Yeah I get Yahoo.....some weekends you have to go past the first 30-40 stories of news one just cant use.


    ISIS Set to Destroy Biblical History.....

    Indeed, museum curators and staff were no better prepared than any other part of the Iraqi government. They could have learned from al-Baghdadi’s operations in neighboring Syria that a major source of revenue for his insurgency has been the sale of looted antiquities on the black market. As reported in The Guardian, a windfall of intelligence just before Mosul fell revealed that al-Baghdadi had accumulated a $2 billion war chest, in part by selling off ancient artifacts from captured Syrian sites. But the Iraqi officials concerned with antiquities said the Iraqi intelligence officers privy to that information have not shared it with them.

    “So we are asking Americans and Europeans—especially Americans—to understand the gravity of the situation,” said Qureishi, and “to put pressure on the governments of their countries to intervene militarily.”.....snip~

    I'd be suspicious of any confession given under the "care" of a foreign government.

    Problem is, the damage is rather grave.

    One problem is that many Germans want to believe it. The way they are treating the Snowden thing is indicative. While almost everything that NSA did here in Germany was condoned by the German government and assisted by German agencies the criticism of The Americans goes on and on and on and on.... This is while the massive law breaking and circumventing of the law by the German agencies and politicians as well as the fact that they had allowed American agencies access and the right to do what they did without seemingly legal basis and in many cases against German law is mostly ignored.

    Mornin TNE. I agree and they did bust him going to the Russians. What I am wondering is.....how will BO try and cover this up. As the Germans will not be letting this go.

    I think so to Jog.....this is like a slap in their face after their last inquiry. Now to have our people spy on what they were looking into with Snowden was just plain stupid.

    Add in that he increased the Risk of harm on all Americans overseas and our Assets. Then his major screw up with Syria and ISIS.

    Its time we ran this fool out of office.

    The way I understand that is it applied to overseas airports, not domestic.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yeah anything coming to the US. But I did put up what TSA said yesterday in the thread I have up in Breaking News.

    It will stay like that and will be adding more Airports from other regions too.
