Double Secret Probation

There is another blog out there which is pretty good. (yes we are the two good ones, which gives you a 1 in 2340743925794023872034957092435 chance of finding a good blog to read) It is called Gurgly and is run by my sister. So it obviously it isn't perfect, but it gets the job done. Those of you accustomed to my political thought may be thrown for a little loop, it is a little more pro-government than things are around here. Well "pro-government" may be the wrong wording; perhaps I should say 'pro-government taking care of things because the people can't do it themselves.' Seriously though it is a good read and was a big motivator for me to get back into this ish. (old people click here)

So if you haven't heard yet, apparently the CIA is running secret prisons all over the world.

Not really that surprising and not really that big of a news story. The shocking part is that the Bush Administration all but confirms this when confronted about it. Yes, when I say all but confirms this I mean that they neither confirmed nor denied it.

So this may not seem like that big of a deal but the fact that they would not deny it is a de facto admission. The story here is that this administration is acting with such brass ones even in the face of indictments that it reminds me of Rocky fighting Ivan Drago after he watched Apollo Creed die; you know Rocky will win, but only with some sort of brain damage or something.

On another note, on google news this story only had 455 articles related to it... Phil Jackson returning to the Lakers had 459. Maybe that is important though... this administration has obviously learned from Kobe Bryant. I mean if they can't prove it, then you must not have done anything wrong.
