Holy Shit

Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern accuses Vice President Dick Cheney of being behind the Niger forgeries.

I know that at this point this is just one man's accusation, and as of yet he has offered zilch in the way of hard evidence to back it up, but goddammit it has such a ring of truth to it.

Via.

Instapundit gets letters! Of marque!

One of Instapundit's many readers wrote in with an idea, and Glenn Reynolds thought he’d share that idea with all his readers. And add a few links to other people thinking along the same lines. But I'm sure this doesn't mean that Glenn is endorsing the idea or anything.

So what is this great idea?
Thing is, I've enough money to hand to train, equip, and deploy six people for six months in the area between Baghdad and Kabul. I'm ex-military, and I'm young enough to be up for a challenge.

Why not open-source the Global War on Terror?
Ex-military, and young enough to be up for a challenge, eh? Ever consider, you know, reenlisting in the military?? Cause I hear they’re having trouble recruiting enough people. Just a thought.

But you are your own man. And you know better than big, bad, bureaucratic government how this war should be fought. So let’s see how this would play out--private citizens striking out on their own, free from government oversight and accountability, waging war as they see fit. Hmm, what does that remind me of? Could it be, oh, I dunno, terrorism, perhaps? Six people would make a nice-sized terrorist cell, wouldn’t it?

Now then, where was it you said you were thinking of deploying to?
I've enough money to hand to train, equip, and deploy six people for six months in the area between Baghdad and Kabul.
Where? The area between Baghdad and Kabul? Hmm, I wonder what’s in between Baghdad and Kabul . . . As a geographically-challenged American, I have absolutely no idea! Maybe I should get a map and take a look.

All in all, a first-rate idea. If we had more ideas like that, I'm sure we'd have this whole Global War on Terror thing wrapped up in no time.
