Senator Dianne Feinstein to Wolf: Pakistan isn’t hiding AQ just helping them

We’re screwed when the chair of the Senate Intelligence committee starts to slice the baloney this thin. The conversation between Wolf Blitzer and Sen. Dianne Feinstein is a real eye-opener as far as I’m concerned. The topic is whether Pakistan knew about the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden and helped hide him. But it quickly degenerated into a much more revealing comment.

As the interview continued, Wolf pressed the Senator from California about whether Pakistan might be hiding other key members of Al Qaeda. Her response is revealing. No, she says, Pakistan’s not hiding anyone, it’s just helping them?


There’s little question that there’s plenty of friction between Pakistan and the United States, even with the young president, who promised better relations with Iran allies. At best we could say that relationship is deteriorating. But to draw this kind of distinction, in a sense continuing to make excuses for Pakistan’s behavior, doesn’t make us safer.

Course it’s always possible that Sen. Feinstein’s comments are for public consumption, and behind the scenes the Obama administration is leaning on Pakistan a little heavier. But then, my little mobsters, there’s always the chance that behind the scenes the administration is making excuses for Pakistan’s behavior. Your choice.

    Should we even question Sen. Feinstein’s assessment of the situation in Pahkeestahn?? Didn’t she work hard to become a Senator?? Her judgement and analytical skills have always been flawless in the past haven’t they?

    Diane Feinstein has never been known for having an exceedingly brilliant mind. After all, look at where she comes from. How many California pols are there with more then half a left hand brain in their head?

    Feinstein is?truly niaive. We pay the Pakis $2 billion a year in blood money. What we get is?a “partner in the war on terror”?that has no intention of walking the walk.?And we let them do this?for one reason only: they are an unstable?nuclear power. They only understand force of arms, so when they get unruly we drone someone.?They then expel a worker bee from the CIA, or send the students out to riot, or arrest colaborators. The Bin Laden thing is just a ratchet-up in?a predictable chain of realpolitik dealing with the religion of hate ‘n death. ?????
