Mueller Gives Saleh FBI Pep-Talk


 

Blah Blah Blah… Is this a high-level bid for Elbaneh, or just a goodwill visit? Can’t help but compare Muller’s indication that:

“the strong, united and stable Yemen serves security and stability of the region and the world, expressing admiration of Yemen’s advance in democracy and development.”

To the letter from President Bush delivered by Fran Townsend that stressing that:

 “Yemen’s security, stability and unity a significant element for serving stability in the region, renewing his country’s confirmation on maintaining the support for Yemen’s security and unity as well as its progress in democracy and development…”

 

 I’m not hating on Muller, I’m not even convinced that this standard script is even coming from U.S. officials…it is the state news agency after all. I’m just playing irony police.
