In The News: Due to circumstances beyond our control, there is a silent gap from 2:38 - 3:16 minutes, but the synopsis IS in full.

Seven US soldiers have been either been killed while at their Forward Operating Base, or during an incursion into Taliban territory in a wide ranging battle in the Northern corner of Helmand province Afghanistan even as an ex-Marine Colonel acting as a regional administrator (?!?) of Zabul province has resigned saying the situation has deteriorated too badly and actions the Pentagon is taking in the area is only making it worse.

From the Washington Post:
*U.S. official resigns over Afghan war*

Foreign Service officer and former Marine captain says he no longer knows why his nation is fighting
By Karen DeYoung
Washington Post Staff Writer

When Matthew Hoh joined the Foreign Service early this year, he was exactly the kind of smart civil-military hybrid the administration was looking for to help expand its development efforts in Afghanistan.

A former Marine Corps captain with combat experience in Iraq, Hoh had also served in uniform at the Pentagon, and as a civilian in Iraq and at the State Department. By July, he was the senior U.S. civilian in Zabul province, a Taliban hotbed.

But last month, in a move that has sent ripples all the way to the White House, Hoh, 36, became the first U.S. official known to resign in protest over the Afghan war, which he had come to believe simply fueled the insurgency.

"I have lost understanding of and confidence in the strategic purposes of the United States' presence in Afghanistan," he wrote Sept. 10 in a four-page letter to the department's head of personnel. "I have doubts and reservations about our current strategy and planned future strategy, but my resignation is based not upon how we are pursuing this war, but why and to what end." [In Full]

On Capitol hill, the Senator Harry Reid and the Democrats have come up with a health care plan that includes a public option based on "The Acquiescence of Non-negation". In layman's terms... You're in (as a state), unless you opt out. As a governor, try telling your state's citizens you decided they weren't going to have health insurance... A cloture vote is due next week.

The Pentagon has fired the top contracting administrator and a number of the contracts cut under his command have been cancelled.

NASA is counting down to launch ARES, the largest rocket ever, technically, a 'spaceplane', even as it's expected to be de-funded within the next couple of months as un-needed and un-necessary for the types of programs considered in the foreseeable future.

There's a new IRS task force to go after the overseas banking of the millionaire and up category. Gooood luck! Expect as much corruption as the drug task forces that work on the higher level drug dealers, like the South Florida Drug Task Force on which the fantasy TV show Miami Vice was based. For the most part, the agents in that program ended up being bought, caught, and imprisoned.
