Colombian Whore Slams US Secret Service Agents

The woman at the center of the Secret Service‘s Colombian prostitution scandal blasted the agents she serviced in a taped interview that aired on NBC’s Today” on Monday.

Dania Londono Suarez, the named prostitute, didn’t hold back: “These seem like completely stupid, idiotic people. I don’t know how Obama had them in his security force.”

She said the agents, not her, should be blamed for “leaving their duty behind” and described them as “stupid brutes.”

“They liked to show off their bodies, great bodies, well-defined abs,” she said of the men. “They liked attention.” She added that the man she danced with at the club kept lifting up his shirt to show his abs, and said it seemed like they had done this kind of thing (solicited sex) before.

Didn’t Obama Say National Security Should Not Be Used As A Wedge Issue

Liberals Are Killing Football

The timing is wrong for this story, but then again the timing would never be right. Because this story considers the idea that football’s popularity — even as millions of fans are tuning in this week to the scouting combine to watch something as unwatchable as potential draft picks running and lifting — will fade over the coming years.

Maybe to extinction.

That’s the hypothesis, and listen, it’s not my hypothesis. Let me duck away from that one right now and put the blame for this story where it belongs, which is to say, with someone else. In January and then again earlier this month, an ESPN website ran stories suggesting the death of football. Hyperbolic — that was my thought. In mid-February a Yahoo website ran a similar story, this one suggesting the death of youth football. More hyperbole. But I was starting to wonder.

Four days later, the NFL trotted out commissioner Roger Goodell, put him on one of the biggest sports-talk radio stations in the biggest city in America to say that we wouldn’t see less football in the future; we would see more. Goodell told WEPN-AM 1050 in New York that he hears it “from the fans consistently — people want more football.” And then he said the NFL was open to increasing the regular-season schedule to 18 games in 2013 or ’14.

Now that Goodell was doing damage control, I was really interested in the hypothesis — not mine, mind you — that football is entering its most dangerous era. And then five days after Goodell’s comments, NFL analyst Troy Aikman went on HBO’s Real Sports and said football in this country “is at a real crossroads.

“If I had a 10-year-old boy,” Aikman said, “I don’t know that I’d be real inclined to encourage him to go play football, in light of what we’re learning from head injuries. And so what is the sport going to look like 20 years from now? I believe, and this is my opinion, that at some point football is not going to be the No. 1 sport.”

Now I’m sold. This hypothesis is no longer their hypothesis — it’s mine. Now I’m starting to think, you know, there’s something to this. At the very least, there’s something to the possibility that football’s popularity, if not its outright existence, could become endangered thanks to mounting head injuries.

Troy Aikman makes his money from football, yet he’s telling the world he isn’t sure he would let his kid play. Aikman suffered a series of concussions with the Dallas Cowboys, so he knows what he’s talking about. If he stays on TV long enough, we’ll know as well. Anecdotal evidence suggests Aikman’s cognitive function — his ability to think quickly, even to speak clearly — has been compromised by all those concussions. It’s a matter of time.

Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood Is Covertly Working With Marxists

Wherever there has been turmoil in the Middle East over the past year, the Muslim Brotherhood has sought to dig its heels in deeply for power. In Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco — even Libya — the decades-old Islamist group is seeking to ensure a powerful resurgence. A fascinating and potentially-disturbing article about the Syrian Brotherhood was published by Reuters this weekend, as the political chaos in the nation continues to take form.

The first few paragraphs provide curious information about the nature of the Brotherhood’s work in Syria as well as the connections it has to leftists, among others:

At a meeting of Syria’s opposition, Muslim Brotherhood officials gather round Marxists colleagues, nudging them to produce policy statements for the Syrian National Council, the main political group challenging President Bashar al-Assad.

With many living in the West, and some ditching their trademark beards, it is hard to differentiate Brotherhood from leftists. But there is little dispute about who calls the shots.

From annihilation at home 30 years ago when they challenged the iron-fisted rule of Hafez al-Assad, the Brotherhood has recovered to become the dominant force of the exile opposition in the 14-month-old revolt against his son Bashar.

Careful not to undermine the council’s disparate supporters, the Brotherhood has played down its growing influence within the Syrian National Council (SNC), whose public face is the secular Paris-based professor Bourhan Ghalioun.

U.S. Releasing Taliban Fighters To Kill Again

The US has been secretly releasing captured Taliban fighters from a detention center in Afghanistan in a bid to strengthen its hand in peace talks with the insurgent group, the Washington Post reported Monday.

The “strategic release” program of high-level detainees is designed to give the US a bargaining chip in some areas of Afghanistan where international forces struggle to exercise control, the report said.

Under the risky program, the hardened fighters must promise to give up violence and are threatened with further punishment, but there is nothing to stop them resuming attacks against Afghan and American troops.

“Everyone agrees they are guilty of what they have done and should remain in detention. Everyone agrees that these are bad guys. But the benefits outweigh the risks,” a US official told the Post.

In a visit to Afghanistan last week, President Barack Obama confirmed that the US was pursuing peace talks with the Taliban.

“We have made it clear that they [the Taliban] can be a part of this future if they break with Al Qaeda, renounce violence, and abide by Afghan laws. Many members of the Taliban — from foot soldiers to leaders — have indicated an interest in reconciliation. A path to peace is now set before them,” Obama said.

A stumbling block in the US-Taliban peace talks has been the US refusal to approve the transfer of five Taliban detainees from Guantanamo Bay to Qatar, which the Taliban says is necessary for negotiations to proceed.

The clock is ticking also on the US handover of security control to the Afghans.

At the upcoming NATO summit in Chicago, the US coalition will set a goal for Afghan forces to take the lead in combat operations across the country next year.

During his short visit, Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai signed a partnership deal that charts a 10-year relationship between the US and Afghanistan once the majority of American and foreign forces pull out of the country in 2014.

Charles Barkley Opens His Big Mouth Again

Former NBA star and current NBA analyst Charles Barkley just can’t seem to keep from mixing sports and politics. During a Sunday broadcast on TNT, Barkley took several shots at Mitt Romney after Romney was spotted attending the playoff game Between the Hawks and Celtics. And it isn’t the first time the Weight Watchers spokesman has used his sports TV platform to preach politics.

“We’re going to beat you like a drum in November,” Barkley said when Romney flashed on the screen. “Don’t take it personally. You seem like a nice guy, but you’re going down, bro.”
