Just how low has America's standing sunk?

I think that I speak for many of us when I say that it was painful to read the list of countries sending aid to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. This is not to demean those countries - God bless them all - but it was more than a little humbling to read that Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Mexico and Romania were included on the list of more than 60 countries sending aid.

Which brings me to the point of this posting. Yesterday The Washington Post
reported that an FBI analyst was charged with spying.
NEWARK, N.J. -- An FBI intelligence analyst with top secret clearance was charged Monday with passing classified information about Filipino leaders to current and former officials of that nation.

Philippines???? Has our standing in the international community really sunken to the point that spies in this country have to go that far down the list to find buyers of our national secrets? What about China, North Korea, Iran, Cuba? Do these folks really find us so uninteresting that they send our traitors packing?

New rule: If you are going to steal state secrets and sell them abroad, if you don't get any bids from the top 10 countries, forget it. Otherwise it's too
embarrassing to us when you get caught.
