I’ve been accustomed to watching Meghan Kelly for her ability for getting the right people in to explain “the news” to me.
I’d earlier this evening eaten a big meal and so took a nap only to wake just in time for Round Two of Meghan’s show – first “expert” off the chocks was General Keane.
I shoulda known after Meghan pronounced “a totally new group” (and duly checked the box this was not just “new” but also “unforeseen”) how this was gonna get spun.

What’s that? You’ve never heard of him?!!! Well maybe you’d recognize the fellow had you available the info he’d later changed his name to … Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Dead now but …
There’s a long shadow cast cast by the guy in and around Anbar. Doubtful you’re gonna get that though if you stick to asking guys like Keane to lead The Kelly File.
Kinda wisht now I hadn’t had to pee.

He’s blaming the the Iraqi government and saying, “not my problem”. And W is staying silent.

This growth could be attributed to real estate. With over 10,

yield high returns and that too very quickly.
