Oh wait,
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - The Taliban's top military commander has been arrested in a joint CIA-Pakistani operation in Pakistan, officials said Tuesday.

Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the No. 2 behind Afghan Taliban founder Mullah Mohammad Omar and a close associate of Osama bin Laden, was captured in the southern Pakistani port city of Karachi, two Pakistani intelligence officers and a senior U.S. official said... Baradar is the most senior Afghan Taliban leader arrested since the beginning of the Afghan war in 2001. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35417489/ns ... tral_asia/
maybe not-
Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama, when asked to name a chief executive he admires, chose one with an unusual pedigree: FedEx Corp.’s Frederick Smith, who raised more than $100,000 for 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain and was George W. Bush’s fraternity brother.

“He’s an example of somebody who is thinking long term,” the president said in an interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek
...
Obama, 48, said he has drawn on Smith’s views on trade and energy matters to “inform how we shape policy.” Smith, Obama said, is “very thoughtful.”

“His industry is deeply sensitive to energy prices, and he’s the first one to say that if we don’t start getting an energy policy that’s smart, we’re going to lose in our competition,” he said. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid= ... kDOYi6UaFU

I'd at least wait for enough snow to melt so that you can see the lower half of it. :cool

actually, we've been in a snow drought the last 4-5 weeks. Very little left in the open areas. Nothing like the past few years.

We need snow in the winter. the fragile economy up here depends on it.


No complaints here though.

Obama’s first Las Vegas remark sums up just how clueless this guy is about business (and his position as President).

Plow, are you in favor of companies bailed out with taxpayer dollars spending money on Vegas trips?

I've been to two sales meetings in Vegas, but my company has cut those out for the last two years, due to the economy. We haven't gotten a nickel of bailout either.

Everybody deserves an "atta boy" on the get from the actual troops, to the intelligence guys, to the brass hats, to the CIC. Good for everyone.

Just hope they are waterboarding the shit outta him right now! Then they can put a bullet in his head. :coffee
