U.S. ‘Not as Constructive as It Could Be’ on Ukraine, Congresswoman Says

In a rare mea culpa statement, Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) says what I’ve said so many times.

The argument that the U.S. heavily depends on Russia for energy supplies doesn’t make a lot of sense though.

Alas, Obama’s overview of world press freedom doesn’t include Ukraine.

That’s despite accredited Ukrainian reporters getting barred from the Medvedev-Yanukovych press conference in Kharkiv and some others getting beaten in Kyiv, Lviv and Donetsk.

When Yanukovych blows Obama’s mind with that giveaway of $1B worth of enriched uranium, democracy takes a hike, right?

Moving on, Secretary Clinton’s husband stands on record for accepting a $5M donation from the son-in-law/thinker of Kuchma.

That’s the same Kuchma whom the free world linked to the mysterious murder of Ukrainian journalist Heorhiy Gongadze.

Which brings us back to Myroslava Gongadze, Heorhiy's widow, who interviewed
Rep. Kaptur.

The US position on Ukraine is sophomoric at this point. But I truly think that the democratic majority in Congress will be overturned come November. Hopefully this will help.

Thank you for your thoughts!

I too hope we'll have better times.
