VDH: OBL, UN, and EU :: NRO


The public wonders why the incompetent Americans can't catch Osama bin Laden, or at least Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Few note that it has been over six years since the collapse of the Serbian rogue regime, and still no one seems to know where either Radovan Karadzic, or his military commander, Ratko Mladic, is hiding inside Europe — not exactly the Sunni Triangle or the borderlands of the Hindu Kush.


UPDATE - Victor David Hanson is on a roll: "In retrospect, America went collectively insane over the possibility a company owned by Dubai's government would operate several of our ports. " [CWCID to grapeshisha.]

UPDATE 2 - Giving a whole new meaning to omnibus, Barney Frank (D, Mass) finds a link between homeland security and homosexuality:

In a recent hearing in the House Financial Services Committee on the issue of UAE government-owned company control of operations at six U.S. ports, Cong. Frank, the top Democrat on the committee, pointed to its recent imprisonment of gay men as one reason we should treat the Emirates differently from other countries.
(The same article describes the Bush administration's handling of the case: stern, patient, practical.)

This behavior, Barney, left you vulnerable to blackmail, something you appear to be rather mind-full of. Not a good thing in a government official, particularly a senior member of the loyal opposition on the House Financial Services Committee. Oh, wait, that's right, you're on Financial Services, not Foreign Services. Nevermind.
