Kasparov meets Obama

This is quite a surprise to me already, Barrack Obama met former chess world champion Garry Kasparov and other opposition leaders in Russia !

Nobody knows exactly what has been said during this meeting but the site Theotherrussia.org provided a full transcript of United Civil Front Chairman Garry Kasparov’s statement to president Barack Obama and an interesting interview of Garry Kasparov... The name of the forgotten Khodorkovsky appears several times.

A good summary could be : "Obama seems like a man who doesn’t try to solve problems that don’t have solutions. He saves his energy and political capital on realistic goals. If there’s a big obstacle he simply takes it off the table and deals with what can be done." (Garry Kasparov)

chomsky on Obama v Bush; 'idea' of USA

chomsky quote from above article..

"
The Obama administration announced that it would appeal the ruling, thus placing Obama's Department of Justice "squarely to the right of an extremely conservative, pro-executive-power, Bush 43-appointed judge on issues of executive power and due-process-less detentions," in radical violation of Obama's campaign promises and earlier stands.
"

(For those who prefer sound-bytes: that gives:
"Obama is well to the *right* of the Bush administration." - Noam Chomsky)

Re:

It's been widely rumoured that when the big "K" met the big "O", big "K" asked for some of the stimulus money that big "O" was dishing out at record speed. Unfortunately, that question proved to be end of their friendship. lol!

K vs. O

I heard that Obama won a chess game between them but that Kasparov got even by beating Obama in 1-on-1 basketball.
