What DC Does in Secret, Rome Does in Public...
Anyways, the lead on this morning's Drudge contains a leak from Bob Woodward's threequel tome on Bush at War, summarized thus: "Kissinger is secret, regular visitor to President Bush. The president likes to receive visits from Nixon's former and most famous aide..."
Seems that Benedict XVI, too, likes visits from Nixon's former and most famous aide -- today's audience list includes a session between the Pope and "il Dott. Henry A. Kissinger."
Could something be at work here?
