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

Richard Holbrooke, America's chief envoy to Afghanistan, who had served every Democratic president since the Vietnam war, spoke chilling last words about the nine-year military conflict in Af-Pakistan before his death during emergency heart surgery yesterday.
"You've got to stop this war in Afghanistan," Holbrooke told his Pakistani surgeon before entering a 21-hour operation, the Washington Post reported.

Holbrooke was the Obama administration's special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, a man whose diplomatic skills and understanding of Afghanistan and Pakistan were a valuable asset to the United States. [More]
[Reality check: Whether his intent was to convince the Pakistanis, through the surgeon, that their support for the Talib was the context of that statement will stay with him to the grave now.]

Richard Holbrooke, as a diplomat, REALLY wasn't that bright... For a validation of that opinion see: "Simple Phrases "Diplomats" Can Say To Ensure Endless War" for one of the ugliest gaffes a diplomat can make when speaking to someone of the Islamic faith... translated, in the vernacular, as: "I'd like to take your daughter for a 'test drive',"

But he WAS a War Criminal, look here (for a graphic version, wipe the ";wap2" from the url and reload the page)

A U.S. District Court Judge in Virginia has ruled that the enforced purchase of health insurance, as required by ObamaCare, is unconstitutional. Two previous judges had ruled that the required purchase is constitutional but this judge was appointed by George W. Bush and has 'interests' in the insurance industry.

The Senate made their cloture vote on the tax package including an unemployment benefit extension last night and will most likely vote on it today or tomorrow.

San Jose California has rejected an attempt to ban all Medical Marijuana dispensaries in the city.

Julian Assange of Wikileaks is in British court today requesting bail as he waits for an extradition hearing.

Update: It WAS granted... with conditions:
If released, Assange must surrender his passport and agree to travel restrictions, adhere to a curfew and wear an electronic tracking device. He must remain at a Sussex address and report into a local police station each evening. His bail was set at £240,000 ($320,000).

U.S. documentary filmmaker Michael Moore announced on his blog that he was contributing $20,000 to Assange’s bail. British heiress Jemima Khan and other celebrities have also offered to cover his bail.

The Guardian reports that the news of Assange’s bail was met with cheers inside and outside the courtroom.

But according to the Guardian Swedish prosecutors plan to launch an appeal against the court’s decision to grant Assange bail. They have two hours to file the appeal, which would be followed by a hearing within 48 hours. [In Full @ Wired, with linkage]

In OTHER News:

An American SLAVE Labor Revolt... In progress.
At least four prisons in Georgia remain in lockdown five days after prisoners went on strike in protest of poor living and working conditions. Using cell phones purchased from guards, the prisoners coordinated the nonviolent protests to stage the largest prison strike in U.S. history. There are reports of widespread violence and brutality by the guards against the prisoners on strike. [More]
A Note on 'criminality and criminal behavior'... Some of these people may be in prison for, let's say Oxycontin... 'Hillbilly Heroin', possession and sales, and all that drug addiction implies. But the criminals at Perdue Pharma, the maufacturer, who LIED to doctors and the public about what the FDA permitted them to say in regard to it's addictiveness, creating through that act a GENERATION OF YOUNG PEOPLE HOOKED ON Oxycontin, setting them on a course for prison, WILL NOT do time.

Pardon my analysis...
