...Obama will visit U.S. Central Command, headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base, on Wednesday for a briefing from his commanders on battle plans against the Sunni insurgent group Islamic State.
....White House officials made it clear that there would also be no U.S. military forces on the ground in Syria to coordinate airstrikes, nor have any done so in Iraq.

“Terrorists degraded or defeated” “Jobs saved or created” Yadda yadda yadda
I wonder if there is a golf course or a fundraiser nearby?
Another tfr for general aircraft in the area. Crap. He’s such a disruption.
charlie the chameleon will probably show up. I see some sick call numbers going up on Wed.
Oh, FFS. More snarled traffic for us this week. Freaking lovely.

If Zinni is confused, this is a cluster fluck of
There are no fewer than 10 golf courses within 20 miles of the Tampa metro. This part of Florida is renowned for its links.
Is he bringing Moochzilla with him?
Get ready for more Michael Dukakis in the Tank moments.
He’s more of a Sea World type.
This is all for show, and even the _”making” it perfectly clear really isn’t. He could cross the Potomac and visit the Pentagon but that disgusting word, optics, wouldn’t be the same.
School lunch ad?
“Zinni is not confident that indigenous combat forces will be sufficient. Who are we leading? he asked. Will it be the Kurds and Iraqis and Syrian opposition and American lead and American command and control?”....
Note to General Zinni: You will be leading from behind, thereby following odumbo’s directions.
It's the key element of a new Nanny State campaign to eliminate over eating in the government schools.
One look at that photo of The Beast and the poor kids won't be able to stomach any solid food for a week.
The Nutrition in Chief needs to drop a few 10’s of pounds. Maybe should should eat at a school following her guidelines.
(1) Charlie Crist is announcing his switch from "White Man" to "African-American Woman."
(2) He is bringing my Obamaphone, with the built-in Global Warming Alert
(3) My grandson was seen eating a PB&J on white bread. BATF agents, accompanied by Michelle, are to make the arrest after shooting the kid's dog.
