Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.

[After the commentary, a short 'pitch' for fiscal sanity by the president, followed by... Jed.]

Unlucky 13 - Thirteen appropriations bills necessary to keep the U.S. government running are about to have their 'continuing resolution' expire, and the US government will run out of it's increasingly worthless money to operate unless something s done about it today. Also, the question of DADT, ensconced in the Defense Appropriations bill, will be discussed as the president meets with delegations from both parties shortly.

From the CQ Roll Call Daily Briefing:
Obama is meeting behind the closed doors of the Roosevelt Room with the top eight congressional leaders: Pelosi and Hoyer from the House Democrats, Boehner and Cantor from the House GOP, Reid and Durbin from the Senate Democrats, and McConnell and Kyl from the Senate Republicans. Also in the room: Biden, Geithner and new OMB chief Jack Lew [Free Subscription]

Dateline Afghanistan: In a display confirming the suspicion we are loved and respected, an Afghan border guard (or someone who looked like one) turned his AK47 on his NATO trainers and kills 6 of them:
The incident occurred in Pachir Wagam district of eastern Nangarhar province, according to an Afghan official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the information was not officially released.

It was not immediately clear if the gunman was a police officer or someone who had infiltrated the training mission. In the past, insurgents have donned police or army uniforms to attack Afghan government installations.

There have also been a number of incidents in which Afghan police officers turned on their trainers in deadly shootouts.

NATO is investigating an incident in which two U.S. Marines were killed earlier this month in southern Helmand province, allegedly at the hands of an Afghan army soldier.

On July 20, an Afghan army sergeant got into an argument at a shooting range in northern Afghanistan and shot dead two American civilian trainers before being killed. Another Afghan soldier was killed in the crossfire. In a July 13 attack, an Afghan soldier stationed in the south killed three British troopers, including the company commander, with gunfire and a rocket-propelled grenade in the middle of the night.

Also, in November 2009, an Afghan policeman killed five British soldiers at a checkpoint in Helmand. A month earlier, an Afghan policeman on patrol with U.S. soldiers fired on the Americans, killing two. [In Full AP @ WaPo]

They really pay spies to accumulate this stuff... WikiLeaks has 'dumped', and almost everything revealed seems to validate what everyone who's been paying attention knew already

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to the WikiLeaks diplomatic cable leaks:
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denied yesterday that the release of 250,000 secret diplomatic cables -- on a few hundred of which have been published so far -- will adversely affect U.S. diplomatic relations. Nonetheless, she called the leaks "not just an attack on America's foreign policy interests," but "an attack on the international community-the alliances and partnerships." Regarding the unflattering descriptions of many foreign leaders and diplomats contained in the leaks, Clinton says one of her foreign counterparts told her, "You should see what we say about you.” [In Full @ Foreign Policy Magazine]
It's notable, as the cables are parsed by the citizens of the world and the information assembled into useful data, that the US WAS SUPPORTING the Honduran coup in July last year.

The Cuban government is going to release eleven jailed dissidents and will release thirty two more shortly. Most will go to Spain and a few to the US.

The Supreme court is due to hear arguments as to whether California has the right to release prisoners in lieu of a Federal takeover of it's INCREDIBLY OVERCROWDED PRISONS, or 'farm the prisoners out' to privatized prisons in Idaho, Texas, and elsewhere in the US where they have chosen the prison industrial complex as a way of earning revenue for the states/municipalities and income for the locals in the form of prison guard jobs.

In OTHER News:

Hillary's 'Army'... the CIA, and their regional henchmen attempt to destabilize Iran's nuclear program, a POWER GENERATION PROGRAM by ALL impartial investigations... IF we succeed in shutting down it's development it will undoubtedly make it MUCH MORE LIKELY that Iran's oil exports will be redirected towards their own usage, leaving the WEST with higher priced oil, and MORE "reasons" for adventurism in the Middle East and Central Asia:
Bombs Strike Iranian Atomic Experts, Killing One

Bombs thrashed the vehicles of two Iranian nuclear scientists as they commuted to work today, killing one of the men and injuring the other, the Los Angeles Times reported (see GSN, Nov. 24).

Attackers on motorcycles threw the explosives or affixed them to the cars of the two men, both of whom taught at Shahid Behesti University in Tehran.

"A Pulsar motorbike drove close to Dr. Shahriari's car and stuck a bomb on his car which after a few seconds exploded," Iran's Fars News Agency quoted Tehran police chief Hossein Sajednia as saying.

"Experts are examining the incidents," the police official said. "The type of the bombs and explosive materials and the extent of damage have not been determined yet" (Borzou Daragahi, Los Angeles Times, Nov. 29).

Scientist Majid Shahriari "was killed and his wife and driver were injured. [Fereydoon Abbasi Davani] and his wife have been injured," Agence France-Presse quoted Sajednia as saying.

Validating my statement at the top of this story...
"IF we succeed in shutting down it's (nuclear) development it will undoubtedly make it MUCH MORE LIKELY that Iran's oil exports will be redirected towards their own usage,"
TEHRAN, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Iran's Oil Ministry is setting the stage for a new era in energy despite international attempts to hamstring the country through sanctions, a minister said.

Iran in the wake of the sanctions switched its petrochemical processing plants over to gasoline production to cope with any potential shortages. The oil minister said Iran has so far produced 264 million gallons of gasoline, which he said took Iran's adversaries "by surprise." [In Full @ UPI]

In Iraq, remember Iraq? Dirty war... based solely on lies, including such callous untruths as General Tommy Franks' off-the-cuff B.S. story that "We Don't Do Body Counts" (yes they did...). We were supposed to be out of the country by now yet our military STILL seem to be there en masse along with thousands and thousands of mercenaries...
Saddam Hussein’s longtime foreign minister, Tariq Aziz, was convicted on Monday by an Iraqi court of terrorizing Shiite Kurds during the Iran-Iraq war, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Mr. Aziz, 74, the only Christian in Mr. Hussein’s inner circle, already faces an execution sentence from another case. [More @ the NY Times]

Finally, in an interview, Afghan Taliban leaders deny that the 'Peace Talks' shopkeeper was a 'plant' and suggested they wouldn't mind finding him... for a 'chat':
"In exclusive interviews, high-ranking Taliban commanders in Afghanistan respond to recent revelations that NATO officials were negotiating with an impostor.

Taliban commanders in Afghanistan reacted with amusement this weekend to news of an impostor who, by claiming he was a senior Taliban leader, managed to fool NATO officials and get invited to high-level peace talks.

Taliban commanders also emphasized that the story of the impostor showed that the much-touted peace talks weren’t real.

“The U.S. and its allies claimed to be having negotiations with the Taliban,” senior Taliban commander Maulvi Rahmanullah said. “This impersonator exposed their inadequate knowledge of the Taliban and their poor intelligence.”

He added that U.S. military officials should have more thoroughly checked the man’s identity before showering him with money.

“If a shopkeeper from Quetta can make a fool of them and keep them engaged in talks for months, how do they believe they can defeat the Taliban?”

The impersonator was reportedly given large amounts of money for himself and others to persuade them to break ranks with the Taliban. He was also given safe passage to Kabul, flew on NATO aircrafts, and was received as an honored guest in the palace in the Afghan capital, even meeting with President Hamid Karzai..."
