Weekend News Roundup -- If you are reading this today, you should consider getting a life. [krakatoa]

What does that say about me?

Shaddup, that's what!

President Obama shocks the world and continues yet another Bush-era policy. Let the Kossack wailing begin -- this one is over wiretaps:

The filing said President Barack Obama has authorized access to classified information on a "need-to-know" basis and argued that the government "cannot be sanctioned for its determination that plaintiffs do not have a need to know classified information."

---

US offers condolences to Iranian victims of terrorist attacks on Thursday... I presume Bill Ayers dissents from his Protege's administration on this, as these sort of consciousness-raising activities are his very bread & butter.

---

Following up in that vein President Obama is to make a speech at the University of Cairo that aims to make Muslims love us.

"The speech will outline his personal commitment to engagement, based upon mutual interests and mutual respect," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said.

The president's foreign policy advisor Mark Lippert says it will touch on "difficult issues."

"He doesn't hesitate to take on the tough issues in his speech, just harkening back to his Senate career when he delivered a very, very powerful message on corruption in Kenya."

Ah yes, that groundbreaking, world-shaking Kenya speech -- I remember it well. What, you neither? I looked up a report on it; It was a diplomatic speech, and I think we are all coming to the realization that the d-word is not an adjective so much as a topic for this president. It also dawns on me that Kenya may have done the influencing vis-a-vis corruption:

The senator also said that ethnic-based tribal politics in Kenya had to stop. Such politics was rooted in the bankrupt idea that the goal of politics or business is to funnel as much of the pie as possible to one's family, tribe, or circle with little regard for the public good, he said.

Mr Obama said that this stifles innovation and fractures the fabric of the society. Instead of opening businesses and engaging in commerce, people come to rely on patronage and payback as a means of advancing. Instead of unifying the country to move forward on solving problems, it divides neighbours, he added.

Or maybe those were some types of corruption that Obama is intimately familiar [cough]Chicago[cough] with.

Bah! I have it on good authority, he is incorruptible.

He is, as always, the Great and Powerful OzBama!
