  1. Totally redundant and thus unnecessary. Anybody looking for on site coverage, CBS NEWS was in Crimea in spades and had the former CIA deputy for insight. Want the best talking heads? All you had to do was watch the NEWS HOUR on PBS. Like Obama bashing or defense, hey, choose your poison. If it makes you feel good to watch this pet of the Arabs, fine, but it ain’t getting traction so it ain’t goin’ no place.
