Pentagon, Congress Left in Dark About Obama’s $5 Billion Counterterrorism Fund

With the U.S. Military Academy at West Point as
his backdrop, President Barack Obama unveiled a new $5 billion fund to fight
terrorism in May. Although the announcement was welcomed at the Pentagon and
State Department, there were immediate questions about what exactly the money
was for. Four months later, those questions remain largely unanswered.

The left and the New Media : The Chomsky Paradox » CounterPunch

by JEFFREY ST. CLAIR

One night over a bottle of Irish whiskey, Alexander Cockburn told me a story about Noam Chomsky’s teeth. One day the great brain went to the dentist for a check up after several years of neglect. During the examination, the tooth doctor noticed extreme wear on the enamel of Chomsky’s molars.

“Not that I know of.”

“Well, the enamel is taking a real pounding. Perhaps you’re doing it at night. Can you ask your wife if she’s observed anything?”

Chomsky goes home Lexington, near the MIT campus and tells his wife Carol about his encounter with the dentist. That night and the next, Carol stays up after Noam has fallen asleep, keeping a close watch for any nocturnal grinding but notices no unusual dental machinations.

However, Carol did observe a furious gnashing each morning at the breakfast table as Noam read his way through the New York Times.

Chomsky ta...

Karen Garcia, Sardonicky: The multimillionaire architect of Obamacare, Ezekiel Emanuel, seems to hate old people, believing that they are eyesores and albatrosses around the necks of "high society." This is a Democrat, mind you, a highly influential member of Obama's inner circle of health policy advisers.
