93. Interesting...

I'll have to see/read 7days...

And I had never heard of the antiwar site before. I just stumbled on the link by reading comments at another site, funny how that all works.

I think your speculation about the coup d'etat is pretty sound. I was wondering when that would become an issue on the surface. I think Obama had clear evidence by the time he started claiming on the media and stump speeches that he wasn't going to let them have their way on taxes and other issues and that they would be working with him on his agenda because he had these perps by the short hairs as long as he won the election. Perhaps the reason for his impassioned tears during the last stump speech and when thanking his campaign staff. Something to the effect of, "...you have no idea how much more I can't tell you, but you saved my ass and your welfare as a free people." I think it did get that intense. And now, suddenly Panetta is looking for a different assignment. He was on the transition team for the first term so I'm starting to connect those dots... at first I couldn't understand why he was in either position, now it's starting to make sense... the equivalent of the "Mr. Wolf" character in Pulp Fiction perhaps.

With that said, I hope this turns out to be a relatively clean sweep of the war machine and the curbing of the mic in order to help us clean up our act as a people. There are a lot of things going to change with regard to our ability to survive as a species coming up in short order and the entire human race will need to get its collective head out of its ass, western nations in particular, or its going to be much uglier than any of us might imagine.

I am glad to see this happening from the top down, the only time I think I'd be willing to accept a "trickle-down" scenario. There's a lot of talk about how the email monitoring campaign is eating its captains. Interesting times indeed. Perhaps we will come to see what Obama is really about in ways we had little hope of in the coming months, when he is able to clear the fog of war and show us what a people can do that goes beyond violence and hatred. I think that is what's going on here and he's had enough of the BS coming from the war monger faction. Getting rid of them with their own devices is brilliant and I suspect that we are seeing that as we speak. To hell with the dust pan, sweep them off the planet, please. And I think this is the only way he could clean house with expediency and work-around the snail paced obstructionism in Congress as well. I think he beat them at their own game, he's very intelligent and I think it's going to become quite evident that he was able to expose them on their terms... real soon. At lest that's what I'm hoping will be the outcome here.
