I think you have to be quite dense to conclude that two leaders meeting after decades of hostilities is not an "inroad". I didn't think you were that way.

There was a time when the negotiated release of hostages could be a common cause, and worthy of praise no matter on which side of the political spectrum one sits. Apparently no longer.

Excuse me for this interruption but this differs from Hillary and the DNC hiring a spy firm to dig up "incriminating material" on Trump and associates how?

I wonder if DL has a contract with the Braves that specifies which airport the Braves use for each stadium. DL then selects which city to position the charter from.

I wonder if this is real? Or made up stuff like the Bush administration did before the Iraq war. It's real, it's just really old as well.
