Comments: We Are So Disappointed With the Corrupt Afghan Government

This is why WE are exceptional. As far as prostitutes go, a gal has got to eat.

SO, the current administration is asking Afghanistan govt to end corruption. Well, is the Afghan govt allowed to demand that "America, the shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere" end Lies, Secrecy, Torture, Targeted Assassinations, Drone attacks AND "CORRUPTION".... FIRST!!??

While the crack about Spitzer's solicitation of prostitutes is warranted, he was at least willing to take on the Wall Street sociopaths and scared the powers-that-be enough that quite a hefty bit of federal investigative energy was employed in busting the deeply corrosive escort service in NY which undermines the very fabric of polite society. Though the whoring similarities cannot be denied, I don't see the Kagans serving any social or political function that is remotely useful.

Lies continue to pile up......."habitual disowning" of an individual for convenience should also be added to the above list!

Why, oh, why wasn't I born destined to be a petty puppet dictator of some foreign oil bearing country??? The CIA would lavish me with money&hookers&a Swiss bank account full-o-gold. I could dictate all the way up to the time when the angry mob was at the palace gates, at which point I would fly away in a brand new helicopter, just like the embassy guys in Saigon, to retire in a little alpine village.

How does one categorise "giving award to a war criminal"? Corruption of some sort? NO.... it is worse......
