"What is the surprise here? are you guys so naive to believe that US is for democracy, period?

US is for democracy as long as it is in it's fornign interest."

Well put.

Thanks for your unbiased reporting. And the insecurity going on here is not tribal, its for democracy. Im tired of the internatinal press narrowing it down to a duel between LUOS & KIKUYU tribes. There are 40 other tribes embroiled in this conflict. They all feel strongly that the election was stolen.
A democraticaly elected government anywhere wont crack down on peaceful protests with live bullets.

GOD HELP US!

WTF indeed. Then again, we are dealing with the Bush Administration. I hate to say it, but remember Florida in 2000?

Colin

I second that WTF.

Here's what you apparently have: incidents in which the local precinct reports X votes for Quimby and the ECK (elections commission) then “reads off its computer screen” in Nairobi — donated by USAID — that the local precinct is reporting X+5,000 votes for Quimby.

Election results were translated via e-mail and SMS on commercial networks with an economic interest in the outcome of the election. Insert sardonic comments from network security geeks on the unbelievable cluelessness of same here.
