The whole loudly announcing of "I'M GETTING ON A PLANE TO CUBA" was all likely smokescreen. The USG doesn't understand that kind of nuance.
One of the 36 tactics in the Art of War is something like, "Make a noise in the east, and attack from the west."
That was Bin Laden's strategy. Ron Paul talked about it. Hell, Bin Laden himself talked about it. "I'll make a big noise over here, and you come attack me. Meanwhile, I'm already way over here on this other hill."
BTW - the first tactic in the art of war, Samantha just informed me: "Run!"
Looks like Snowden's got that one down too! Ha ha.
Thanks for the updated Tom. Hope you're doing fine.
To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
