One of the News Agencies had a timeline of Obama's schedule for the last month. It's incrediable he was able to keep everything together, and not letr out a peep about what was going on behind the scenes.
Bush Sr. closed up our independent Arab Intellegence group, I know this because I had clearances to work in their building, and they were a major loss to us contract wise.
