My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Three Stories I Couldn't Care Less About

A military inquiry has found that guards or interrogators at the Guantánamo Bay detention center in Cuba kicked, stepped on and splashed urine on the Koran, in some cases intentionally but in others by accident, the Pentagon said on Friday.

So, what. . . I suppose because of this that now Islamists will regularly have protests in which they'll burn the U.S. flag. Oh, no . . wait. . . they do that already. How about, they'll strap bombs to their children and send them . . .no. How about, they'll fly airplanes and drive cars laden with. . . no, that too. Or maybe what they'll do is take the prisoners that they have and behead them on tape and broadcast it for the world to see. Oh, no, can't do that one either.

As one caller to Hugh Hewitt asked this week, I wonder what the Islamists say about incinerating copies of the Koran in the middle of a service by blowing up a mosque. Because, of course, this is one of the latest routes the terrorists have gone in their quest to spread carnage and destruction across as wide a swath of the world as possible. So don't come to me with crocodile tears for the "mistreatment" of Gitmo prisoners based on splashing urine--sometimes by the prisoners themselves--on copies of the Koran.

A former FBI official claims he was "Deep Throat," the long-anonymous source who leaked secrets about President Nixon's Watergate coverup to The Washington Post, his family said Tuesday.

W. Mark Felt, 91, was second-in-command at the FBI in the early 1970s. His identity was revealed Tuesday by Vanity Fair magazine, and family members said they believe his account is true.

A few days of "was he a hero?" later, and frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. Now, given I was not around in the Watergate era--er, excuse me, I was 4 years old in 1973--but I can't imagine that anybody outside of Washington or the MSM echo chamber cares about who this guy is. Never mind that nobody's bothering to ask why the number two guy at the FBI was leaking to the WaPo rather than woking through the chain at DoJ.

And, thirdly:
Saddam Hussein's morale has plummeted as the gravity of the war crimes charges he faces sinks in, the judge who will oversee his trial said, and an Iraqi regarded as a top terror leader was arrested Saturday in northern Iraq.

Aww. Poor baby.
