7:00 P.M. Wednesday June 30th 2010 Obama – Holder In Danger

The President’s chopper touched down on the South Lawn of the White House grounds. As the President emerged Sasha and Malia greeted him with warm hugs and accompanied him as he walked towards the main building. The girls were so happy to see their Dad since his busy schedule had kept him from doing the things they normally do. He had just given a puff speech at a town hall meeting filled with union and party supporters in Wisconsin and he was tired. He did his best to convince the crowd that the economy was getting better but he could see on their faces it wasn’t working. They were polite but not convincing enough for the embattled President.
Earlier in the day General Betray-Us received a 99-0 vote confirming his command of the Afghan war by the U.S. Senate. Interestingly many of the same Senators condemned him years earlier for his attempt to save Iraq with the now successful Surge. Senators from the left nicknamed Petraeus General Betray-Us at that time, and now they were asking him to win America’s longest war. The General felt vindicated as much pain was felt in that hollowed chamber as those Senators’ from the left cast their votes for him.
It was 8:10 when the President received a phone call from his Attorney General, Eric Holder from Kabul, Afghanistan. This highly unusual trip to a war zone by an Attorney General was suspect by President Karzai. Karzai was not stupid and he remembered the way George Bush Sr. took care of drug dealer, money laundering President Noriega of Panama back in 1989. He had no intentions of letting that happen to him, so he assigned a few of his assassins to accompany Holder while he did his rounds. He knew Eric was there for his head and it would be a cold day in hell he’d let that happen. The first sign of a move against him, Holder would be a dead man, Karzai calculated. “Listen Barack,” Holder said, “I just had breakfast and I’ve got what I need, now can I get the fuck out of this hell hole?” “OK, great we’ll meet when you get back. You’re sure right, I mean you do have everything, we can’t screw this up, right?“the President said. “Oh yeah, I got it all. It wasn’t hard, he’s looking at a minimum of 200 years with good behavior” as Holder laughed into the phone.
President Obama and his Attorney General were plotting to bring drug and RICO charges against President Karzai of Afghanistan in an attempt to disrupt the war effort. He knew he could derail the top brass’s military efforts by arresting Karzai and shipping him back to the U.S. for trial leaving the civilian government in disarray. By standing on moral ground and charging him with drug trafficking the American people would understand, but the military would be furious as this backward country imploded. He also knew that this would destroy Petraeus’s efforts to win the war and his Presidential run as the 516th day of the Obama Presidency continued to disrupt.
