Pull the other one

KABUL - Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai said Friday that US President Barack Obama was the "appropriate" person to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

"We congratulate Obama for winning the Nobel," said Siamak Hirai, a spokesman for Karzai.

"His hard work and his new vision on global relations, his will and efforts for creating friendly and good relations at global level and global peace make him the appropriate recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize," he told AFP.
We are living in a golden age of cant.

10 a.m. - Oval Office
Accept Nobel peace prize.

11 a.m. - Situation Room
"McChrystal’s proposed strategy for the war-torn country will require 30,000 to 40,000 more troops, billions of taxpayer dollars, an extremely long term commitment, and thousands more American lives--a bitter pill the American public seems unlikely to swallow.

"Biden proposed a shift in strategy that would concentrate on attacking al Qaeda and Taliban leadership in Afghanistan and Pakistan using special forces and unmanned predator drones equipped with missiles."

Decisions, decisions ....
