Just headline for now from Reuters:

  • Greek police says 2 unexploded parcel bombs found on suspects, one addressed to Belgian Embassy
  • Greek police believes blast not linked to Al Qaeda, suspects may be linked to leftist Guerrilla
  • Greek police says one of package bombs intercepted in Athens addressed to French president Sarkozy
  • Greek police say both bombs are now diffused by controlled explosions

Deja vu of a certain archduke frolicking in southeast Europe and some such? No news if package originated in Yemen.

Another one bites the dust. Gen. James Jones leaving Obama. In other news– no joke– Whitehouse insiders have leaked that Mr. O is now on anti-depressants and has increased his smoking. That’s a great sign, isn’t it? When he buys one of those black “duster” coats and asks for one of the Marine guards guns, I might get a little worried.

OK, I’m tired of waiting for Zsa Zsa and Dick Cheney to make the list. But we see a looming political death:

This, along with yesterday’s HuffPo list of CEOs who hate Obama, The London Telegraph and Guardian disses on him, it is perhaps the end. And lest you think this is one rube’s opinion, this fellow implicitly speaks for the following:

“He is a member of the JPMorgan’s National Advisory Board, theCouncil on Foreign Relations, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

President George W. Bush appointed Zuckerman to serve on the Honorary Delegation to accompany him to Jerusalem for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the State of Israel in May 2008.”

and a Bilderberger

Anyway, when someone from these groups says “You’re out”, then chances are you are out.
