Zelenskyy has denied that the missile was Ukrainian.  Apparently this needs to be investigated further.

Well, it won't be.  Consider the matter settled.

Perhaps a perfect phone call could settle things.

Great
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Great for Griner and her loved ones but a terrible deal.  Releasing a civilian who made a bad choice and became a political pawn…for one of the worst allies of world wide terrorism and destructive arms dealers of the last century.

I'm very happy for Brittney Griner and her family. 

Also:

I'm so mad that we released a notorious international criminal arms dealer that is/will be responsible for many past and future loss of innocent lives.  The cost may have been too high.

I'm pissed that our government gave up so much.  I'm pissed that Russia gets away with this sort of thing.  I'm pissed at a certain wing of the GOP is so public for either their support of Russia or at least appease them or repeat their propaganda and let them get away with things like this.


If there is any silver lining, the high profile nature of this may help reinforce to people to take the laws of authoritarian ruled countries seriously and hopefully realize that however flawed the United States is, our freedoms and rights should be cherished.

Online arm chair international hostage experts is refreshing from the standard arm chair pathogen pandemic expert.  Methinks a bit of overlap between these two groups of experts.

You should know by now we are all experts on everything.  When there is trouble in the world, you need only ask us at scoop for the answer.

I don't know about the others, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

She might if she's asked. Or she might burn the flag when her plane touches down, which is fully within her rights as a citizen.

I thought Russia was sending us a point guard to balance out the deal?

Seriously, the US and our State Department needs to bury this story as fast as possible. For Griner's benefit if nothing else.

I’m just happy that George Soros was willing to borrow Hunter Biden’s laptop and fly to Benghazi to make this deal over TikTok.

Glad for Griner, her wife and their loved ones. That must have been beyond awful for both of them.
