Canary in a coal mine (271)

Without consulting my crystal balls, I know this plan will work (via McClatchy):

Pakistan’s new government is negotiating a peace deal with militants in the Taliban-controlled Waziristan region, the rugged mountainous area that’s thought to be Osama bin Laden’s refuge.

How do I know? Dana told me:

“We are concerned about it, and what we encourage them to do is to continue to fight against the terrorists and to not disrupt any security or military operations that are ongoing in order to help prevent a safe haven for terrorists there,” said White House spokeswoman Dana Perino . “We have been concerned about these types of approaches because we don’t think that they work.”

Let’s see. The bumbling quarter-wits who thought calling off the hunt for Osama bin Laden and invading Iraq did work now think brokering peace deals with some of the guys who kicked Russia’s nads into the Caspian Sea won’t work, which tells me it most certainly will work and might even lead to a cure for Ms. Purina’s intense stupidity.

OK, maybe a cure for cancer. Curse my optimistic nature!

What else do the members of bAdmin’s Brainless Trust have to say?

The military “is really ticked off,” [Ticked off? Goodness gracious me! At least they aren’t “Vexed” or “Miffed.” Mr. Regents U. Class of 2004 Jackhole – ed.] said the State Department official [Anonymous, natch -ed.], who added that U.S. entreaties to the Pakistani military to keep the heat on Islamic extremists “seems to be falling on deaf ears.”

Well golly gee fucking whilikers, now there’s a surprise and a half. I wonder why the Pakistanis aren’t listening to the U.S. like they used to. Could it be the new government doesn’t want anything to do with the pack of lying ass clowns who propped up a dictator to promote democracy? I hope not, or The Chimperor might get “ticked off” and order an invasion.

And for a final dose of unintentional humor from the Bushakkists:

South Waziristan is the most volatile part of Pakistan’s autonomous tribal belt, known as the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), which runs along the country’s border with Afghanistan.

U.S. officials believe that the FATA, and South Waziristan in particular, are a base for the Taliban and al Qaida. The Bush administration was critical of a previous peace accord in South Waziristan, which was forged three years ago, seeing it as giving an opportunity for the militants to regroup. That accord, and a similar one in North Waziristan in 2006, were followed by increased attacks against NATO forces in Afghanistan.

Ah yes, FATA. A territory so strategically important to bAdmin. and The War Against Terror that it forgot the place existed … right after it sent that check to Pervez M.

  1. Jake,

    Off topic, but I left a comment about Oliver Winery over at Balloon Juice. You mentioned going to law school there. Just wondering when you were there. I was at IU-Bloomington law school from ’93 – ’96.

  2. On the real, Osama bin Laden and Al Queda are totally useless as straw men if they aren’t ‘on the loose’.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the Big Dick’s real genius is making it look like they are incompetent when the results of their perceived incompetence was the plan all along. Hence the choice of the Chimpinator as president.

    Dick Cheney will go down in history as one of the most diabolical criminal masterminds in the history of the world. And that is not a good thing.
