CIA: al-Qaeda is being defeated

Here is something you won’t see on the mainstream news (CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC). For some reason, US success in Iraq and Pakistan/Afghanistan is not reported on balance but the American deaths, setbacks and struggles are reported at every turn. The news media was also very reluctant to admit that the surge was having positive effect.

The article warns against complacency. It also states that Iran is aiding the militants with weapons, training, and people. But on the whole, we are really kicking some hind parts over there.

NBA Finals

The Lakers are the first half of the finals. As they have done in years past, the Lakers got past their opponent with a little help from their friends (refs). I was wrong to think they couldn’t make it out of the west.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the same for the Celts in the east. The NBA has to be seeing $$$ in their beedy little eyeballs!
