Arms sales

The numbers are almost beyond understanding. Shocking, scary, and symptomatic of everything wrong with this administration.

30 billion – Israel (including cluster bombs)
20 billion – the House of Saud
15 billion – Egypt

Spying needs a human touch

The day of the spy-in-the-sky approach to intelligence gathering may be coming to an end, plagued by cost overruns and systems so complex they take too long to perfect and probably most importantly are increasingly less useful in the age of terrorism.

Alberto, pack your bags
