Fly By: Sorry For No Posts

My apologies to everyone who looks forward to reading my trivial thoughts on the great issues of the day. This has been a brutal week of meetings, a big corporate function, ferrying kids across the state, a family reunion and a bad cold that turned into an infection. I have been operating on the very […]

Sorry again for the light posting. One thing I forget is how much work backs up when you are on travel for two weeks! Some interesting tidbits in a basically slow week. Pakistan looks to be close to extraditing a key Taliban warlord to Afghanistan, which could open the door to some major intel: U.S. […]

Fly By 05_03_10 – Open Thread

Still on travel, and not much to post about today.  Clearly in the news is the amateurish bomb in NY City and the apparently fake pipe bomb in Pittsburgh. More troublesome, in my mind, is the continued oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. I find it hard to believe is there was no fail […]

Sorry for the light posting, having to take care of business issues, thanks to the fact Congress has yet to pass this year’s budget. You would think with wide margins in both houses of congress and the presidency the Democrats could get their work done on time. Anyway, some interesting reading. Rasmussen now shows the […]

Some interesting articles I thought my be of interest. I thought Time Magazine has put out a pretty well balanced review of the current polarizing political environment being driven by the left and right purity wars: Trust is a toxic asset, sitting valueless on the national books. Good faith is trading at pennies on the […]

Fly By: Pakistan and Afghanistan Border Region 07_23_08 – Updated

Little time for an in depth discussion on the material I found recently, but I do want to get it out for folks to review. First, there is a conflict brewing between the militant Taliban and the local government and pro-government tribes. The stage is set for a major crackdown by the government as the […]

Lots of work to do today so I’m going with a Fly By of interesting stories across a range of topics this morning. First off is a disturbing tale of potential terror that broke a few years ago across our northern border in Canada: The so-called Toronto-18 is not the first group of suspected terrorists […]

Fly By On The War On Terror

Meetings again all day so some short links to stories on the war on terror you won’t find on the mainstream news. Saudi Arabia’s top cleric has decreed giving to the ‘evil’ al-Qaeda is not good for Islam: Saudi Arabia’s top religious authority warned Saudis against giving money to charities and organizations financing “evil” groups, […]

Lots and lots happening related to Iraq and little time to post this morning – so back to the Fly By format. Top of the list is the neutering of the far left’s attempts to pull out of Iraq and destroy our currently fragile progress that was so hard fought for (and sacrificed for) this […]
