WSJ про Петреуса

WSJ тоже полагает, что Петреус пострадал, поскольку сопротивлялся сбрасыванию под автобус. Ну, сбросили под каток вместо автобуса. А вон Хиллари во всем призналась, и теперь спокойно отсиживается в Австралии.

At issue was whether the CIA should break its silence about its role in Benghazi, Libya, to counter criticism that increasingly was being leveled at the agency and Mr. Petraeus, said senior officials involved in the discussions.

Mr. Petraeus wanted his aides to push back hard and release their own timeline of the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi and a nearby CIA safe house, seeking to set the record straight and paint the CIA’s role in a more favorable light. Mr. Clapper and agencies including the Pentagon objected, but Mr. Petraeus told his aides to proceed, said the senior officials.

Равноправие

After weeks of wrangling over the issue, the European Commission approved a draft law that would create a gender quota for non-executive directors of stock-listed companies across the European Union. If approved, the new regulations would stipulate that women occupy 40 percent of the seats on the non-executive boards of Europe’s roughly 5,000 publicly traded companies by 2020. In instances where candidates’ professional qualifications were the same, women would also be given preference, should they be under-represented in that company. Companies that do not adhere to the rules could be sanctioned.

Сексистский законопроект. Почему всего 40%, а не пропорционально доле в населении? Почему только non-executive directors? Почему только stock-listed companies, а остальные как же? Зачем столько времени дали, что, прямо сейчас выбирать не из кого? Много еще работы предстоит европейским регуляторам.
