Break Time!

After what seemed to be the longest week of the year so far, I am taking a break tomorrow.

The boys and I are getting up early to head out for a fun-filled day of bird watching. We’re planning to hit a few of the more popular birding areas that we haven’t had a chance to explore yet. Who knows what we’ll find.

Gidget will be staying home to play with her new toy, and I’m sure she’ll have a great time without the four of us yelling and screaming while we play Wii Bowling.

While I was catching up with my reading tonight I took a few moments to watch a Jon Stewart clip, on Vinny’s recommendation. Now I recommend that you watch it too.

One year ago, President Obama signed an executive order to close Guantanamo Bay within one year. Guantanamo Bay is still open. I guess that’s Bush’s fault too, huh?

That’s it for tonight. Hopefully tomorrow night’s post will be filled with photos of birds I’ve seen for the first time.

Another Unanswered Question

My finger is healing nicely, which is good news. It’s just going to be another day or so before I can type normal again.

We took the new cat to the vet today and as expected, the new cat is a boy, not a girl. Carroll County Animal Control needs a few lessons on determining the sex of young cats. I thought it was boy, and had mentioned so several times since Christmas day.

This evening we picked up some groceries for dinner and while we were at it, we picked up a small bag of catnip for Mr. Kitty (aka Indy). He loves me again, at least for another week before he goes in for a little nip and tuck, so to speak.

I’ve been wondering about something most of the day, so here it is.

Was Eric Holder, or at the very least the law firm he worked for, responsible for the attempted terrorist attack on Christmas day?

At least one leader of al-Qa’ida’s branch in Yemen, where the failed bomber of a US-bound Christmas flight was allegedly trained, was freed from the US prison in Guantanamo, Cuba, a Pentagon list reveals.

The list, released in May, names 27 former prisoners who resumed terrorist activities after being released from Guantanamo, including Said Ali al-Shihri, who was transferred to Saudi Arabia in 2007 and later implicated in the bombing of the US embassy in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, last year.

There is an additional and intriguing angle involving Yemen, creating a confluence between, that country, Ft. Hood and the Obama administration, in that U.S. AG Holder’s former law firm, Covington & Burling, represented a number of Yemeni detainees who are/were being held in GITMO.

Al Nashiri [born in Saudi Arabia] is part of a group of 15 Yemeni GITMO detainees who are represented by David Remes a member – until he was either booted or saw the handwriting on the wall and “resigned” on July 18, 2008 – of Attorney General Eric Holder’s law firm, Covington & Burling

Go read the entire thing and then make up your mind.

At the very least, the law firm should release pertinent documents so as to remove the appearance that they could any way be responsible for the actions which occurred on Christmas day.

Where has he (Eric Holder) been anyway? Not one word from him since the attempt to blow hundreds of Americans out of the sky? That’s just a little strange isn’t it?

What is it with the Obama administration and all the questions? It seems every time there is any sort of controversy, we’re always left with an unanswered question.
