American Intelligence Success

Maybe it's because today is the 4th, but I feel a blog that is consistently critical of U.S. intelligence agencies and their capabilities should give a shout out when credit is due. Our intel and servicemen were key in rescuing Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt and a few Americans from the FARC two days ago in Colombia. The BBC has a great recap here.

The best news is it all went down, bad guys taken out, good guys alive and well, without a shot fired.

Bravo, U.S. military and intelligence.

Happy Fourth of July to everyone else. Congratulations on 232 years of a (mostly) successful experiment!
