REACHED FOR COMMENT, CRANKY CLINTON TOLD THESE REPORTERS, "I'VE ALWAYS FOUND SAUDI ARABIA TO BE MORE PROGRESSIVE THAN RUSSIA WHEN IT COMES TO WOMEN'S RIGHTS. THAT'S THE TRUTH JUST LIKE EVERY WORD FROM MY MOUTH IS THE TRUTH. I AM ALWAYS HONEST. I NEVER LIE. IGNORE THE FBI. IGNORE EVERYTHING. IF YOU DO I WILL RUN IN 2020 AND I WILL! I WILL!"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
More and more, I think what any occupant of the White House needs is a car with twin 11-year-olds in the backseat, bored, hopped up on Monster and kicking the seat in front of them while repeatedly asking, "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"
Are we there yet?
That's one of the most important questions that president-elect Donald Trump will face once he's sworn in as President of the United States.
And someone needs desperately to define where ''there" is.
The Iraq War, or at least this century's installment, started in March of 2003.
Two months shy of 14 years, the war continues and US troops are still engaged in it -- from the air and on the ground.
As a point of reference, WWI and WWII did not last as long -- did not last as long combined.
Yet still the Iraq War continues.
Erik Gustafson (THE HILL) offers four things to remember regarding Iraq.
1) Victory in Mosul does not mean the ISIS threat is over.
2) Young democracies like Iraq are not the place for strongmen.
3) Reconstruction must address the longterm needs of the Iraqi people.
4) Iraq's ability to secure its future is limited by serious economic shortcomings.
Maybe . . . don't take your eyes off Iraq? Don't ignore it?
Terrorism in Iraq gets far less attention, but Iraq was the site of the deadliest terrorist attack in 2016.
Yep, it does get less attention.
Why is that, Kenny boy?
Because you used your Twitter feed to campaign for Hillary Clinton?
I'm sorry, I thought Human Rights Watch was politically neutral.
Had you just focused on Iraq, maybe it would get the attention it needs.
Had you just Tweeted about HRW's Iraq reports, it might have gotten attention.
But before the election you thought you were slyly promoting Hillary and post-election you've had a tantrum or two.
Maybe if you'd focus on human rights and the work of HRW, Iraq could get the attention it deserves.
If you're part of the problem, that's on you.
