Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/12/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/12/2012The big news today came from the CPAC conference in Washington D.C. However, no one sent me any tips for it, so you’ll just have to go to Google News - or visit Jihad Watch to see a video of the confrontation between Suhail Khan and Robert Spencer.

In financial news, the Greek parliament agreed to implement the austerity measures that will allow the country to receive another €170 million in emergency loans from the ECB. Greece’s creditors will now have to take up to 70% in writedowns on the money owed to them.
