Obama Hits The Hat Trick
Obama has officially hat-tricked today with his snub of PM Gordon Brown. The release of Lockerbe bomber, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was controversial from the outset. Later revelations that showed PM Brown's government was instrumental in the release in return for lucrative petroleum deals from Libya caused many American's to wonder what in hell was wrong with PM Brown's brain case.
Now today it has been revealed that Obama denied FIVE seperate requests from Brown for a bi-lateral meeting either at the U.N. sumit toay or at the G8 conference in Pittsburg. The reason? Brown's intervention on behalf of al-Megrahi.
That is the third time since his election that Obama has actually done something right. The first being the change in policy regarding federal funding of stem cell research. The second being was ramping up the fight in Afgahnistan, (Although he seems to be reversing course on this one) and now this.
Let's see, 9 months, three things right.
Well, here's to the "Hope" that his learning curve rapidly improves....
