Tucson Committee on Foreign Relations


Tomorrow night, Thursday, I will be speaking at the Tucson Committee on Foreign Relations. Regrettably, I show up at about 4 pm, do a television interview, and then the dinner and return to Washington the next day at 6 am — so no coffee house gatherings this round.
On Friday, I am going to participate in a roundtable discussion with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and then participate in a dinner with Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs R. Nicholas Burns, who I saw tonight as well at the Atlantic Council. I’ll have something posted on Nick Burns’ speech tomorrow.
Last night, I organized a salon dinner for Senator Chuck Hagel on the topic of getting America’s national security portfolio back in shape. It was a fantastic evening — and need to get that material posted as well, probably tomorrow during the air flight.
Sorry I’m dragging on a few of these interesting sessions — including more commentary on the Iran conference last week, but I’ll get the key parts up soon.

    Tucson has a committee on foreign relations?
    I mean, I’m sure it’s a nice place and all, but we talkin’ ’bout Tucson. Tucson? We talkin’ ’bout Tucson. Tucson. We talkin’ ’bout Tucson. Tucson?

    POA–Meanwhile the pathetic Condi Rice took a break from lying to Congress to visit NeoCondom East, where nobody wanted to talk to her. I hope she at least had the opportunity to shop for shoes. Jim Lobe has more–http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=36675

    Okay Steve, now when are you going to organize a salon for Wes Clark? Just think: sound foreign policy served with a large helping of progressive domestic politics. Now there’s something that will never be found on a plate at a Chuck Hagel table.

    Half of Palestinians in West Bank and Gaza malnourished

    Around 46 per cent of Gaza and West Bank households are “food insecure” or in danger of becoming so, according to a UN report on the impact of conflict and the global boycott of the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority.

    Hagel too? Wow, great. You might want to ask him if he will be a bit more forthcoming about his busainess and financial holdings if he runs for President, than he was in 1996/1997, 2002/2003, when he exposed himself as just another slimey lying Capitol Hill opportunist hiding his conflicts of interest from the American people. Or don’t ethics and honesty matter anymore?
    Tell me Steve, when Hagel talks to you, does he bring his hardball mitt, or can he catch your pitches bare-handed?

    You’re gonna meet with Rudy, eh? Ask him if he’s having any lung trouble, or if he and the EPA management had the good sense to avoid the toxic air that they lied to New York about being safe to breathe.
