    I was raised to be a man. Be honest and stand up when I had screwed up. I understand the glee of the Dubai police chief. The last shoe has not dropped I suspect. And I can understand the profound silence of the Netanyahu Government and Mossad. It is embarrassing to be caught red-handed. I have always wondered if Nixon had gone out and simply stated 'of course we were bugging the democrats' would Watergate have brought him down? As he was re-elected by an overwhelming majority I don't think he would have been harmed. But since the democrats offered no danger, no threat, had no chance of winning in 1972, why the hell did he have the democrats bugged? Crazy people do crazy things. And then they are crazy enough to think they can bullshit the world that they didn't do that crazy thing. Was offending Dubai, the UAE, Australia, England, France, Germany and Ireland worth the pleasure of whacking a single terrorist? Probably not. But we have learned Bibi isn't man enough to be honest
