There is a great deal of disturbing news from around the world on the War on Terror – not the least of which is the announcement of desertion charges filed against Bowe Bergdahl, our “prize” in last year’s Turd for Terrorists swap. And in the midst of all this we get this strange story: Big Guy met with his former Secretary of State on Monday afternoon behind closed doors to discuss "a range of topics." According to a Big White statement:
"President Obama and Secretary Clinton enjoy catching-up in person when their schedules permit," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in a written statement.
Doug Powers speculated they were trying to get their stories straight:
“I’m not saying a strategy to address Hillary’s recent problems was formulated at Monday’s WH get-together, but the Iranians are now allowed to develop nukes provided they test them on Hillary’s email server.”
Naturally the reunion was closed press, butt here’s a file photo of Bo and Hilz hugging it out; I’m certain Monday’s meeting was just as warm.
Butt frankly I’m more intrigued by the clock than the hug. Since when does the President get his own time zone? And what the heck’s up with Zulu/UTC? Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is no longer good enough? Why, because it’s white privilege time? You’ll be relieved, as I was, to find out it that we aren’t actually gauging our watches and smart phones to Zulu time; it actually stands for “Z Universal Time Coordinated.” Apparently the NATO phonetic alphabet word for “Z” is "Zulu." These international issues get very complicated.
Like when your ally launches a proxy war against the country you’re negotiating with over obtaining nuclear arms:
Saudi Arabia on Wednesday night launched airstrikes against Iranian-backed Shiite rebel forces in Yemen, responding to distress calls from the U.S.-backed Yemeni president who was fleeing the country in the face of relentless advances by the rebels. - Washington Times
While you’re busy helping the other side:
Just as Saudi forces began bombing the Shiite rebels, U.S. fighter jets were providing support for Iran-backed Shiite fighters in Iraq’s war against the Sunni extremist Islamic State group.
While those Iran-backed fighters are busy looting U.S. files in Yemen to get spy information:
Secret files held by Yemeni security forces that contain details of American intelligence operations in the country have been looted by Iran-backed militia leaders, exposing names of confidential informants and plans for U.S.-backed counter-terrorism strikes, U.S. officials say.
Who knows which rabbit hole this one leads us down, as things just grow curiouser and curiouser.
