[B]ut he shot 75 on Saturday and dropped out of contention with another 75 on Sunday. He finished the tournament tied for 44th, one shot under par. It’s the first time he’s finished outside the top-10 at Torrey Pines. He’d won the event seven times, including each of his previous five tries. …

Fisk:

Anti-American sentiment was growing after Mr Obama’s continued if tepid support for the Mubarak regime. “No, Obama, not Mubarak,” posters read. And Mr Mubarak’s face appeared with a Star of David superimposed over his face. Many of the crowd produced stun-gun cartridge cases fired last week with “Made in the USA” stamped on the bottom. And I noticed the lead tank’s hull bore markings beginning “MFR” – at this point a soldier with a rifle and bayonet fixed was ordered to arrest me so I ran into the crowd and he retreated – but could “MFR” stand for the US Mobile Force Reserve, which keeps its tanks in Egypt? Was this tank column on loan from the Americans? You don’t need to work out what the Egyptians make of all this.

Man arrested with explosives at Michigan mosque

DETROIT – A 63-year-old Southern California man who was traveling with explosives in his vehicle with the intention of blowing up one of the nation’s largest mosques where mourners had gathered for a funeral was arrested in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, Michigan authorities said Sunday.

Dearborn police said Roger Stockham was arraigned Wednesday on one count of making a false report or threat of terrorism and one count of possessing explosives with an unlawful intent. Stockham had a large but undisclosed quantity of class-C fireworks including M-80s, which are outlawed in Michigan, Chief Ronald Haddad said.

Back when DiFi was the target of a bomb placed under her house (think it was early 90s, she went to the senate in ’92), I listened to the senate hearings that were called on domestic bombs, fringe militias that make use of bombs and so on…

Cali and Michigan were the all time centers for that sort of thing. And bombs have a stunningly high rate of “being successful”, which just means going off.

hmm from J Post

[T]hey blame Israel and the US for supporting a government because it is convenient for them, not because it is good for the Egyptian people.

“The USA does not support democracy; they’re supporting Israel, which is like their baby,” said Ahmed, a 26-year-old Cairo resident. “They think Egypt is functional because it’s in favor of their considerations.”

“I don’t care if we have peace [with Israel] or not,” Ahmed continued, echoing the indifference of many demonstrators who don’t have a clear agenda for what they want a future Egypt to look like, as long as it does not include Mubarak. “But will Israel allow us to have a real president? For example, Turkey elected an Islamic government, but it was their choice. Will Israel give us the freedom to make the same choice?” he asked.

Demonstrators are relying on the foreign press to get their message to Obama.

“Isn’t this democracy?” they asked me over and over when I said I was a journalist from America, incredulous that the country held as the pinnacle of world democracy could ignore such widespread popular sentiment. ….

BooHooHooMan - 31 January 2011

Surely the Egyptian revolutionaries are enjoying the apocryphal stories in the Jerusalem Post.

Unrest Rattles U.S. Approach in Region

Egypt risks setting off shifts that undermine broad U.S. foreign-policy goals—and, say some strategists, could put the U.S. in its weakest position in the region in half a century.

‘Front-Row Seat on the Revolution’
For Berkeley-Alum Tour Group, Tear Gas Spurs Memories; ‘Much More Serious’ Than ’60s
:lol: {SOo Revealing! – BHHM}

CAIRO—At 10 p.m. on Tuesday, the day of mass protests that thrust Egypt into turmoil, about two dozen people on a package tour organized for University of California, Berkeley alumni landed at Cairo Airport.

The graying group of Cal Bears—most of whom had graduated in the 1960s, when the campus was a hotbed of student activism and the site of regular clashes with police — was told upon arrival that Egypt’s biggest demonstrations in decades were building and that their hotel was in the thick of the action.

“Everybody on the bus said, ‘We’re used to tear gas, we’re used to protest. …

Oh the boychicks are sufferin’ and strugglin’. Wriggling in their school chairs… wondering why it is so hard out there for a pimp.
:lol:

[T]hose are the big-picture threats. More immediately, aides are debating how aggressively to prod President Mubarak to step down and/or get the ball rolling on free elections. Western diplomats are convinced Mubarak is UNLIKELY to survive in office. But stranger things have happened in that neck of the woods, so President Obama is being cautious, both to avoid a backlash if the U.S. is seen as trying to engineer a successor, and in deference to other Arab allies. “It’s just a very tough line to straddle,” a senior administration official said. “If [Mubarak] guts this out and stays, we’re going to continue to need him and work with him, and he might not appreciate that we pushed. Bottom line, Egypt’s destiny is Egypt’s to decide, and we’ll work with whoever emerges or is left standing.”…

MEANWHILE… Angry Arab posits this:

US lies

Don’t believe a word about how the US is clashing with Mubarak. Not one word. Much of the rhetoric of the US administration and its propaganda outlets like the NYT and Washington Post are lies layered with more lies. If the US wants Mubarak out, it would have made a public statement to that effect.

I have a feeling that the US stance has in fact hardened against Mubarak’s ouster in the wake of Obama’s phone conversations with two experts on Egypt: Netanyahu and Saudi King.

If they want him out. CUT the AID.

marisacat - 31 January 2011

I don’t think Obster is all that interested or knows what to do. Plus, Israel has made it clear, they don’t want any transition.

Various sites are linking to memos and meetings from a range of ME people to and at the WH last September and November, the subject of which was .. get ready, one way or the othr Mubarak is soon coming to an end and thre WILL be instability.

Ob’s political advisors have mostly moved on, to Chicago, t either run for mayor or work the campaing HQ. And hell they were Jews most of them, and the hangers on too.

Obby is all alone it seems. Just a motherless foundling.

Hope hope hope.

So will he let Egypt become like Gaza? Starving and bombing the people into submission?

What mass population control are the military people dying to try out?

And will they get their way….after all, if it {revolution} happens in Egypt, it could happen anywhere.

And what about Egypt’s debt? Bankers want their cut. Can’t get their money if Egypt is bombed into the stone age. So where are those fancy bombs that just kill people and leave infrastucture. …my mind runs away with possibilities. Many not so good.

Whoopsie.

Debt-ridden Dubai Properties announced today it was suspending construction on the Tiger Woods Golf Complex. Again.

The luxury golf complex was supposed to open in September 2009, before the Dubai real estate market crashed. A few months later, Tiger’s marriage, performance and brand value crashed as well.

Unfortunately neither party has recovered from last year. …

But not to worry! It is a market based decision:

The government-owned firm told Middle East Golfer (via Arabian Business): “This decision was based on current market conditions that do not support high-end luxury real estate. These conditions will continue to be monitored and a decision will be made in the future when to restart the project.” …

marisacat - 31 January 2011

Oh catnippers! You are so mistaken! He is so very very very busy. Busy Bee! Beein’ Busy!

via Mike Allen email

OBAMA’S APPROACH, per a senior administration official:

“The President has been very closely monitoring the situation in Egypt. He’s requested multiple briefings each day, and has personally made key decisions.

For example, at approximately 4:15pm on Friday, the President dropped into a previously scheduled Principals Committee meeting on a different topic so that he could discuss Egypt with his top foreign policy advisors. At that meeting, the President decided to call President Mubarak and to make a statement to the American people. That said, it has not interrupted his domestic policy schedule at all. As you’ve seen, the President’s national security staff has been churning throughout the weekend. [Deputy National Security Adviser] Denis McDonough chaired a [Deputies Committee meeting] on Sunday, and [National Security Adviser] Tom Donilon chaired a [Principals Committee meeting] Saturday before leading a briefing for the President.”

Busy Bees, Bees Bein’ Busy: We do so too know how to Multi task! We do so too know how to govern!

US sends envoy to Egypt

Retired diplomat Frank Wisner, who served as ambassador to Egypt from 1986 to 1991, has arrived in Cairo for talks with Egypt’s leaders, State Department spokesman PJ Crowley said.….

…. ‘We’ve sent a very clear message to Egypt, publicly and privately. … Crowley said. ‘But obviously ambassador Wisner will have the opportunity to reinforce what we’ve already said.’

For a minute I thought creepy Frank G. Wisner had risen from the CIA ‘suicide’ casualties, but turns out it’s his equally creepy son, Frank G. Wisner

Frank Wisner, Jr. was a big catch for Enron Corporation. His lineage is impeccable, since his father, Frank Wisner Sr., was a senior CIA official (from 1947 until his suicide in 1965) who was involved in the overthrow of Arbenz of Guatemala (1954) and Mossadeq of Iran (1953). [and “Operation Paperclip” – diane] Wisner Junior was well-known in the CIA and he worked as Under Secretary of Defense for Policy and Under Secretary of State for International Security Affairs; his current boss, Kenneth Lay, Chief Executive Officer of Enron Corporation, also worked for the Pentagon during the US war in Vietnam. With “economic espionage” as a task for the CIA (see PD, 12 October 1997), there is little doubt that Wisner used this instrument during his long-tenure as Ambassador in Asian nations. A Wisner staffer told InterPress Services this year that “ifanybody asked the CIA to help promote US business in India, it was probably Frank”.

marisacat - 31 January 2011

well I wonder who suggested to Mubarak or the Interior Ministry to cut the internet. Supposedly, at least it is reported, the first instance of a full shut down.

And since we have a bill moving thru congress right now to facilitate the same thing, with special attention to making sure there s no opening for judicial review of what our Pretzel might do…

I am guessing we suggested it.

16. marisacat - 31 January 2011

oh wow, the Florida judge struck down the entire healt care law.

SCOTUS here we come… :lol:

[B]ut Vinson went further than his Virginia counterpart by ruling that mandate cannot be “severed” from the whole law, which he ruled must be junked entirely:

In the final analysis, this Act has been analogized to a finely crafted watch, and that seems to fit. It has approximately 450 separate pieces, but one essential piece (the individual mandate) is defective and must be removed. It cannot function as originally designed. There are simply too many moving parts in the Act and too many provisions dependent (directly and indirectly) on the individual mandate and other health insurance provisions — which, as noted, were the chief engines that drove the entire legislative effort — for me to try and dissect out the proper from the improper, and the able-to-stand-alone from the unable-to-stand-alone….

I must conclude that the individual mandate and the remaining provisions are all inextricably bound together in purpose and must stand or fall as a single unit. The individual mandate cannot be severed.

Via Angry Arab:

Don’t mess with Aljazeera

The Saudi government learned that lesson, the hard way. When Aljazeera started and it expressed a wide spectrum of opinions (much more than now), Saudi-owned media (some 95% of all Arab media, at least) launched fierce campaigns against Aljazeera. Then they realized they failed and orchestrated the reconciliation with Qatar, which certainly lowered if not eliminated the anti-Saudi tone of Aljazeera (since that reconciliation I have not been invited once to discuss Saudi or Jordanian affairs when my first ever appearance on Aljazeera was about Saudi Arabia).

I am told by higher ups in Aljazeera that Prince Nayif was instrumental in the reconciliation with Qatar because he told his brothers that Aljazeera can really affect stability and dissent in the kingdom of horrors.

Mubarak is dumb: he closed down Aljazeera’s offices and arrested Aljazeera correspondents (can you imagine the international uproar of Syria or Iran did that?). So what did Aljazeera do? It has gone all out. Aljazeera is clearly now bent on bringing down Mubarak’s regime. The coverage is non-stop. All other programmings have been suspended. Take that, Husni and Jamal Mubarak.

“America, which waves the banner of ‘citizens rights,’ ‘democracy,’ and ‘freedom of information,’ turned its back in a day on one of its most important allies in the Middle East.

Obama sold Mubarak for the pot of lentils of popularity among the Egyptian masses,” Haber wrote, adding that the US president did this without a true understanding of the Middle East.

“Our conclusion in Israel needs to be that the man sitting in the White House is liable to ‘sell’ us over night.

The thought that the US might not stand by our side in the day of need causes chills. God help us.”

Clinton calls home US envoys in post-mortem on WikiLeaks crisis

By David Usborne, US Editor

Tuesday, 1 February 2011

Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, has summoned more than 260 US ambassadors and envoys from every corner of the globe for a week of brainstorming and re-evaluation in Washington, just as America’s sprawling diplomatic machine is facing crises on several fronts at once, not least thanks to the work of WikiLeaks.

The unprecedented gathering at the State Department began yesterday and brought together America’s most senior diplomatic representatives from 180 countries. Most have been told to stay in Washington all week for a series of meetings and pep talks. Ms Clinton is set to address them tomorrow and will have face-to-face meetings with envoys from front-line countries where the stakes for America are highest.

Can’t they get their bullshit straight?

Officials stayed quiet about the initial purpose saying only that Ms Clinton was anxious to complete planning for 2011.
However, it comes at a time of multiple challenges for the US in its foreign dealings, including the growing clamour on Capitol Hill for cuts in foreign aid and the impact of the turmoil in Egypt on Middle East policy. That is not to forget the running sores of Iran and North Korea or the perils of American policy in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Cooper on CNN just said All communications are set to be clipped in Egypt in advance of today’s Million in the Streets..Tho he didn’t say so , All would mean satellites. Anybody seriously think U.S. Officialdom ISN’t Happy – Hasn’t been Happy all along – to have Mubarak liquidate whoever gets in his way?

Our Policy makers have really screwed the pooch now. Which is saying something, pooch-screwers they’ve been…

Matt Stoller at Naked Capitalism…
With that, the FCIC has completed the final act of oversight for the last Democratic Congress, and it held true to what Democrats in the last Congress believed. Everyone was at fault for the crisis, but no one is to blame. This was Bush’s line in 2008, that “Wall Street got drunk”, and Obama’s line throughout the Dodd-Frank mark-up. The Republicans went after the GSEs and “regulation”, and the Democrats sadly lamented the tragedy of the crisis. Again, everyone’s at fault, and no one is to blame. I saw high-ranking Democrat Carolyn Maloney brag yesterday about her vote for TARP in the hearing on foreclosures, noting that the Dow busted through 12,000 as a sign of prosperity. This is what they believe, in their bones. There was no theft, only tragedy….”
