Across the pond

their foreign intelligence leaders seem to be both wiser and, if it needs to be said, of a different gender from ours.

Well, wiser yes. But we have yet to hear such concise wisdom from Hillary Clinton, perhaps because she's not retired yet. Or is effective irrelevance a prerequisite to honesty?

Fair comment, Kyle. I listened to Col. Wilkerson's explanation of why he didn't resign rather than feed Colin Powell all that bullshit that Powell recited at the UN Security Council before we invaded Iraq. Although he considered it -- even wrote a resignation letter--he said he stayed on because he felt he could be "more effective on the inside." Talk about bullshit.
