Gem of the day

Great 1940s-inspired quote from Leon Panetta on how he sees his role at the Pentagon fitting into America's wider future (via NY Times)

"'The real test for the country, as well as for the administration,' he said over a breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon in his Pentagon office, 'is going to be whether or not ultimately we can’t deliver on trying to solve the economic issues, but also deliver on the issues that I’m involved with in terms of war and peace.'"

And what huge global issue really underpins that test, Leon? Maybe he should cast his eyes over this.
