Hillary: Putin “doesn’t have a soul”

This isn’t going to play well in Moscow.

Speaking in Hampton this evening, Hillary Rodham Clinton said the president of Russia “doesn’t have a soul.”

She was riffing on the danger of inexperience, and reliance on personal relationships, in foreign affairs, indirectly comparing Obama to George W. Bush, who notoriously looked into Vladimir Putin’s soul and liked what he saw.

“I could have told him — he was a KGB agent. By definition he doesn’t have a soul,” Clinton joked.

She may have been echoing John McCain’s somewhat less personal shot at Putin: “I looked into his eyes and saw three letters: a K, a G and a B.”

Yeah - this will play real well. Heh.

Georgia says it fired at Russian plane this week | International | Reuters
TBILISI (Reuters) - Georgian forces fired at a plane they believed was Russian after it violated the Caucasus republic’s airspace on Wednesday, a senior interior ministry official said.

The incident marks an intensification of a row between the two countries in which Georgia has accused Russian planes of violating its border and of dropping a missile near Tbilisi.

Russia called the Georgian statement a provocation. It has not reported any plane missing, and when asked specifically about the Georgian statement an official denied Russian aircraft had violated Georgian airspace.

This should end well.
