Ted Barlow points out why the recent arrest senior al Qaeda figure Khalid Sheik Mohammed does indeed have a bearing on Bush's obsession with Iraq:
To me, the lesson of this is that there is simply no such thing as a unilateral war on terrorism. This capture would not have happened if Pakistan had not been enthusiastically prosecuting a war on terror. Similarly, the conviction of the 9/11 plotter in Germany, and so on. Most of the bad guys are in other countries. Their continued good will will save a lot of lives. If for no other reason, this is why diplomacy is important. As we lose the good will of our allies, triumphs like this become less likely.
Incidentally, if Pakistan falls to an anti-American government, we're in a world of [bleep!] (Sorry, Ted...)
And Interesting Times speculates on whether Mohammed was separated at birth. Really, the resemblance is uncanny...
Update: Patio Pundit thinks it's a shame that Ron Jeremy is being compared to an al Qaeda scumbag. Good point, really...
(Great googly moogly! I didn't know the IMDb listed pr0n films among an actor's credits. My man Ron has appeared in an astonishing 753 films of all sorts, including an uncredited role in Jesus Christ Superstar.)
