Another of the wonders of the Arab Spring

“Finally, concerning the highly controversial notion of sexual orientation, we can only reiterate that it is not part of the universally recognized human rights,” said the Egyptian delegation at the UN Human Rights Council.

“We call on Mr. Kiai not to undermine the credibility and legitimacy oh his important work in the eyes of real people who actually need it, especially in regions where such concepts are rejected by both its Christian and Muslim inhabitants like the Middle East,” the statement added
.Which reminds me of the Queers for Palestine idiots; do they somehow think they'd be immune to harm if they went over there, or do they not care?

As to the leaks and 'Obama's electronic war on Iran, isn't he WONDERFUL!' noise,
But Israeli reporters Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman have been speaking to Mossad agents and they have a very different story:
The Israeli officials actually told me a different version. They said that it was Israeli intelligence that began, a few years earlier, a cyberspace campaign to damage and slow down Iran’s nuclear intentions. And only later they managed to convince the USA to consider a joint operation — which, at the time, was unheard of. Even friendly nations are hesitant to share their technological and intelligence resources against a common enemy. In our book, Spies Against Armageddon, we will reveal much more about the special strategic relations and cooperation between the CIA and the Mossad and the importance given by the Aman (military intelligence) to cyberspace warfare.

Remember all the "This is just a political attack on the AG!" crap from Rep. Cummings? He issued a 'report' a while back...
But the substantial body count that resulted from this operation is something that Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings and his colleagues avoid mentioning. The report simply does not include the two American federal law enforcement officers killed in ambushes with Gunwalker firearms, and does not mention the Mexican casualties of this Obama administration-created fiasco.

Instead, the minority report minimizes the magnitude of the crimes perpetrated under the guise of law enforcement, while building the case for gun control — an interesting development, as gun control may have been the ulterior motive for Gunwalker all along

Yeah, Krauthammer is a very smart man, but if he actually expects the major media to accurately cover Gunwalker, then he's got a blind spot a mile wide.

Borrowed from Kaus:
Don’t Be Paranoid. We’re Out to Get You: From the conclusion of Eugene Robinson’s op-edattacking the GOP’s Fast and Furious investigation:
[C]ongress should look into the overall flow of firearms from the United States into Mexico. The Fast and Furious weapons were just a small part of a much larger problem. Mexican officials have complained for years that lax U.S. gun laws have the effect of worsening drug-related violence along the border. …

If Issa really wants to save U.S. and Mexican lives, he should convene hearings on banning the sale of high-powered weapons.
That will reassure Second Amendment enthusiasts who suspect the otherwise indefensible Fast & Furious fiasco was really an effort to lay the groundwork for a … ban on the sale of weapons (by confirming the Mexicans’ complaints about the origin of guns involved in Mexican drug violence). …

And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get some netting to keep the effing mockingbirds from destroying more of my tomatoes; it's either that or set up a sniper hide near the garden.

My vote is for the sniper hide near the garden.

Doesn't take too much to fix that statement. Too bad it would take a lot to make if happen.

One of the bastards got under the net and damaged one, but didn't do him any good; one of the dogs whacked him.

"What? You want our campesinos to be able to protect THEMSELVES?"
