fyi: The military strikes back. Sid

A riposte from Tom Ricks, reliable mouthpiece of Petraeus et al, assailing Biden, surrogate for Obama, with a leak that Biden sleeps through briefings and an appeal to McDonough et al to shut up Biden (and by implication shut up the president). Nice.

Cheers, Sid

My thought: How’s that embrace of Maliki working out, Sid?
