OMG, Will Sequestration Lead to Another Pearl Harbor Attack?

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie is warning that sequestration “will undermine our capacity for readiness at Pearl Harbor.”

Um, Neil, we’re friends with Japan now.

Look, some people will miss getting paid for one day of work a week for two or three weeks.   Some people will wait in line longer at the airport, which we’re all used to anyway.  By March 27, they’ll figure out the sequester or the government will shut down.  And even if the government shuts down, how long do you think that will last?

The sequester is embarrassingly stupid, but it’s really a big yawn, a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing.

Terrorists Hold Americans Hostage in Algeria

Islamic extremists have attacked a BP natural gas site in Algeria and seized 41 European, Japanese, and American hostages.  Seven of the hostages are believed to be American.  Two foreigners were killed in the initial attack.

Algerian troops have surrounded the facility.

Looks like a rescue mission for the Israelis…
