FRIDAY, THE STATE DEPARTMENT RELEASED 1,116 MORE OF CRANKY CLINTON'S E-MAILS. THESE WERE HIGHLY REDACTED BECAUSE "64 CONTAIN CLASSIFIED INFORMATION."
REACHED FOR COMMENT, CRANKY INSISTED, "SEE, IT'S THE STATE DEPARTMENT THAT'S PUTTING OUT CLASSIFIED INFORMATION, NOT ME! I'M AN INNOCENT IN ALL OF THIS VAST RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY. IT'S THE STATE DEPARTMENT AND FOX NEWS OUT TO GET ME!"
SHE THEN LET OUT A LOUD AND NOXIOUS FART.
"EXCUSE ME," SHE SAID AS SHE WALKED AWAY.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
And once upon a time, US President Barack Obama grasped that.
He knew bombings were not going to defeat the Islamic State.
He ordered bombings to start in August of 2014. Shortly after, August 11, 2014, he made some remarks while vacationing on Martha's Vineyard.
US President Barack Obama: But as I said when I authorized these operations, there is no American military solution to the larger crisis in Iraq. The only lasting solution is for Iraqis to come together and form an inclusive government -- one that represents the legitimate interests of all Iraqis, and one that can unify the country’s fight against ISIL.
Today, Iraq took a promising step forward in this critical effort. Last month, the Iraqi people named a new President. Today, President Masum named a new Prime Minister designate, Dr. Haider al-Abadi. Under the Iraqi constitution, this is an important step towards forming a new government that can unite Iraq’s different communities.
Where did his common sense go?
The US government has done nothing to address the political crises.
And now some even crazier 'plans' are floated. As we noted at Third in "Editorial: Congress has a plan for Mosul," US House Rep Brad Sherman's become all about the killing:
Mosul was seized by the Islamic State in June 2014.
The Iraqi government has been unable/unwilling to liberate it.
So all this time later, Mosul remains in the hands of the Islamic State.
But rest assured, Brad Sherman is on the job.
Last Wednesday, during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, Sherman felt the need to pontificate to Barack Obama's Special Envoy Brett McGurk.
Brad's bothered, you understand, by the electricity.
Why, he wanted to know, was the Iraqi government supplying civilians in Mosul with electricity?
Brad would just cut it off.
They've been occupied for almost two years.
Could be for two more years more as far as anyone knows.
But it don't bother Brad.
He also didn't understand why more bombs were not being dropped by the US and why, specifically, Mosul wasn't being bombed.
"Civilians!" the world collectively screams back.
Oh, Brad didn't forget about them.
He just doesn't give a damn about them.
Why when France was occupied, he insisted, the allies killed at least 90,000 civilians while they bombed.
Brad Sherman is deeply disturbed.
