A Quickie: Pope Plays Dumb — UPDATED

Pope John Paul II Pope is ‘shocked’ to hear of abuse case in Munich while he was archbishop
Shocked, eh Pope? Give him an Oscar!

“His former archdiocese of Munich has acknowledged that, while he was in charge, it dealt with a suspected paedophile priest by transferring him to a different parish where he went on to commit sex offences against children. The revelation has drawn attention to Benedict’s handling of abuse claims, both when archbishop and later as a prefect of the Vatican office dealing with such crimes, a position he held until becoming pope in 2005.

I bet he is as shocked as Obama and Biden and Hillary on the new Israeli settlements!
Another three Oscars, please!!!!!

UPDATE 1: Apparently the acting did not pay off for the Pope. The story is not going away and his full involvement in the sordid affair is coming to light:

UPDATE 2: Regarding the apparent “shock” by Hillary at the new East Jerusalem settlements and resulting “shock” felt/crocodile tears shed by ADL at her criticism, DO NOTE that Hillary chose her words very carefully. She did not say what you believe she said; In her statement she never stated she was against these new settlements, just the timing of them (as apparently it forced Biden to express his “shock”). She said “the announcement of the settlement the very same day the vice president was there was insulting.” 😉

Shamshad Ahmad — Glue Sniffer

To see undeniable proof of why we are so fvcked up today and how we got here, one doesn’t have to look further than the latest by the honorable Shamshad Ahmad, former foreign secretary. The title alone got my attention (“Obama’s Lost Momentum”) and the contents I thus found were as expected from such a heading. Certainly disappointing coming from one supposedly in the know who is one the the most sought after commentators.

By the way, what was the need to regurgitate something we can find in a thousand publications? Had he anything new to offer than the conventional wisdom? Ziltch! It only shows Shamshad lapped-up every press release issued by Obama PR campaign as if they were ‘wahis’ from above.

No Surprise: ‘Even Charles Manson could beat him now’

Gary Younge of The Guardian writes:

“One year after his election, Barack Obama’s approval rating is lower at this stage than for any US president since Eisenhower. So why has the optimism surrounding his victory disappeared so suddenly?”

Well Gary, you must have been awake with your eyes wide shut, like every one else who bought that “change” cool-aid that you journalists were selling.

But Gary is not alone. Every paper and every popular blog even here in Pakistan was selling the same poisoned grape juice (for example see Teeth Maestro went all out and gave us “YES WE CAN” Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States, Would We Understand Barack Obama?, Why I as a Pakistani, choose to support Obama, instead of McCain, Joe Biden as Obama’s VP running mate – Good for Pakistan, The reaction of Obama’s Victory in Pakistan; PKPolitics celebrated his victory as well and his accession.)

Of course I saw through the color of his skin and called it like Gary seems to have just discovered. Here is a sampling of my comments from those sites (for which I did get slammed by the baboos — and babbet Gul):

Now that the “Revolution” has Failed…

…On to Plan B (which used to be Plan A, so nothing has changed really)

With the failure of the Western powers to ferment a popular uprising after the 12 June elections in Iran that they hoped would lead to regime change, the West has now had to return to the ‘Iran has nuclear weapons’

meme in order to pave the way for an attack against Iran in the hope that regime change can be affected that way….

U.S. has already given the “green light” for an Israeli attack though the Obama White House is trying to deny it. But we’ve got the transcript and the video 😉 AND Israel’s appreciation!

And we haven’t forgotten Obama’s earlier utterance nor Biden or Obama’s background 😉 :

The Writing on the Wall for Obama’s ‘Af-Pak’ Vietnam

May 13, 2009

There was something almost painful about watching President Barack Obama last week reprising a track from his predecessor’s Greatest Hits when he hosted the leaders of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Just like Bush, Obama invited us to suspend well-grounded disbelief and imagine that Hamid Karzai and Asif Ali Zardari have the intent, much less the capability, to wage a successful war against the Taliban. Then again, there had been something painful even earlier about watching Obama proclaim Afghanistan as “the right war” and expanding the U.S. footprint there, reprising the Soviet experience of maintaining an islet of modernity in the capital while the countryside burns.
