Obama And The Old First Iraq War Trick
Apparantly Maxwell Smart has influence on The Man On The Way Up's administration. Bruce Reidel, a former CIA officer and now a Brookings Institution scholar, has been appointed to oversee a review of US policy in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and his grand strategy is to secure peace between Israel and the fiction known as Palestinians. It's a ridiculous idea (being ridiculous is in keeping with the stupidity of the CIA) and brings to mind Saddam Hussein's attempt to legitimize his 1990 invasion of Kuwait by trying to tie it into Israel. It's the old it's-Israel's-fault-so-make-them-get-peace-with-Palestinians trick. Yep, Maxwell Smart would have seen this one coming.
