It turns out that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence has determined they would be poorly served by John Philbin, one of the FEMA executives responsible for last Friday's fake news conference.

Good for them.

Perhaps Senator Barack Obama might take a lesson from the same book and distance himself and his campaign from anti-gay preacher Rev. Donnie McClurkin, who claims God 'saved' him from homosexuality.

The Obama campaign has released a three-page memo explaining that the good reverend only wants to 'cure' the 'unhappy' gays, and continues to defend McClurkin, who has previously remarked that gays are the product of abusive homes and are out to kill our children.

What I don't get is that none other than Oprah Winfrey introduced Rev. McClurkin to the Obamas.

So when the FBI arrives in Iraq to investigate the alleged unprovoked shooting of Iraqi civilians by Blackwater USA contractors, the crime scene has been all but destroyed - evidence was moved, normal traffic had resumed on the street.

Now, the FBI has learned that the State Department has granted the Blackwater members involved immunity - before taking their statements, continuing the Bush Administration practice of breaking the law and then putting up roadblocks while assuring the public they're diligently looking for the truth.

And we're winning in Iraq.

Elsewhere in the Winning Hearts & Minds Department, Afghan President Hamid Karzai - while affirming that U.S. and NATO forces have made major contributions to bringing peace and stability to his country - nonetheless made it clear to President Bush that far too many civilians are being killed as a result of air strikes.
