News Roundup – Moving, Benghazi, Blockbuster

I really hate these "happy" movers

I really hate these “happy” movers

I really, really hate moving. I hate the whole process. I hate being in limbo, not knowing where your stuff is. I really hate boxes. Damn.

Now that I have gotten that off my chest. I don’t understand CBS’ story on Benghazi. Lara Logan, a reporter who has done great work in the past, spent a year on this story. A year. Basically, she tells Dylan Davies’ story which I might add will be published by Simon and Schuster. Simon and Schuster just happens to be owned by CBS. WaPo has mentioned that this guy has told at least one version of his Benghazi experience that was really different than what was shown to us on the tube. For some reason, that doesn’t seem to bother Lara Logan and 60 Minutes. Personally, I don’t know what to believe. I do know that we were attacked by terrorists. I do know that we did not have adequate security. I have no idea what the protocol for security in a hostile environment would be. We have been told that the attack took about 90 minutes. Top military officials said that there wasn’t time to get military assets from wherever they were to Benghazi to help our ambassador. That’s what I think I know.

Stick a fork in Blockbuster. They are more than done. The once mighty company has decided to close its remaining stores. They were everywhere just a decade ago. Faster, stronger internet, smartphones and the iPad killed Blockbuster. It is sad that Blockbuster couldn’t adapt quickly.

Reporter Michael Ware responses to Drudge Report

Michael Ware has been in Iraq reporting the war since the very beginning, if I’m not mistaken. He clearly understands the issues. First, the good news, there is some progress with the Surge. Second, the bad news, Baghdad is still not even close to being safe for Iraqis let alone Americans. Finally, Mr. Ware responds to the Drudge Report (Drudge wins a bronze for the worst person in the world).

According to Crooks and Liars, Drudge has taken down the original post. No apology has just to be posted. I’ll check in the morning.
