Something fishy is going on. First Russia persuades Kyrgyzstan to shut down our base there (which they deny), and now they volunteer to let us go through them instead. What are the odds that Obama is so wrapped up in the stimulus bill and his crappy cabinet position appointments that he’s ignoring warning signs that something bad is brewing out there in the outside world?
Let’s hope Russia is doing this just so they can have more leverage at the bargaining table and that it’s not something more sinister. With Putin pulling the strings over there, who knows?
