I don't think just because you know how to use Twitter means you are a journalist. But using Twitter doesn't mean you are not one either. #NBCNews

Haven't we warned the mil. that they have to "tone it down" or lose our foreign aid? But how much do they have to fret? Karzai tells us to go f*ck ourselves every day, and we still give him a big bag of cash.
