Blame Washington's intelligence failure, not lack of police

State-owned media in Moscow are reacting warmly to the news that President Obama plans to appoint his top adviser on Russia as the next U.S. ambassador to the Kremlin.
The death of Osama bin Laden brings a "measure of justice" to the relatives of those killed in a 1998 terrorist attack in Nairobi, U.S. Ambassador Michael Ranneberger said this week at his last reception in the Kenyan capital.
The U.S. ambassador in Kenya announced Tuesday a ban on four top government officials and a businessman from traveling to the United States because of suspected connections to drug smugglers he compared to "infectious rats."
"Nobody is happy to leave this country."
The former U.S. ambassador to Kenya, Michael Ranneberger, who launched the project, said in an interview in April, just before he left his post, that youth empowerment will help avoid a repeat of postelection violence during Kenya's next presidential election in 2012.
"If you have poverty the way it is, of course it is always going to be possible to manipulate people, but if enough attitudes change and youth start networking with each other and talking that could be a huge dynamic," Mr. Ranneberger said in April.
