.......on soccer. And no, that is not a typo. The Attorney General of the United States took a taxpayer-financed trip to Switzerland to try to bring the World Cup competition to the USA.
As is becoming typical with him, the effort was a flop. Instead, the competition (for 2022) is headed for Qatar, where women have to walk around in a tent-like wardrobe called a burka and soccer is almost unknown; the favorite sports are falconry and camel racing.
DOJ put out this statement: "The president asked the attorney general to attend to show the high-level commitment of our government to secure the World Cup and to make clear that the United States has the capacity to host a World Cup that is both secure and welcoming to the people of the world."
Now let's see. Mr. Holder can't quite figure out what to do about WikiLeaks' spilling diplomatic and military secrets all over the world; we still haven't decided where to try Kahlid Sheikh Mohammed; we're going to continue to give Miranda warnings to terrorists, or maybe not; and drug cartels are mutilating and killing dozens of people within shouting distance of our border; etc., et al. Still, we need the AG to wage the (losing) fight against holding soccer matches in Qatar.
Your tax dollars at work.
