Comment on Steam your algorithms and eat them too by Piotr

For the sake of completeness, let me mention that the August 24 withdrawal will not be complete. Some of the troops will stay in a semi-permanent base established in Denmark, called MADALGO.

Think about GITMO, but for graduate students and postdocs. Of course, the residents will be returned to society after completing the re-education process.

See here for a new school on this important emerging topic.

Like Bush I am shocked that they tell the enemy at what time they plan to start withdrawing from the school (August 24). I much prefer an open ended school that would end only when democracy and freedom would role Denmark, instead of the current oppressive regime.

Kidnapping and failure…

There is an interesting article by a journalist that was kidnapped in the Gaza strip.

There is also a new devastating report on the Israeli prime minister and government functioning in the second Lebanon war. This probably would lead to the PM quitting his job.

The difference in the handling of this compared to the handling in the US of the failure in 9/11 and the “not lost” war in Iraq reveals something deep about a lack of flexibility and responsibility in the US system.
