Pardon my French, but the Bush Administration are a bunch of sick fucks There's nothing like waking up to a story where administration officials out (allegedly) an undercover CIA agent
and endanger the entire population of earth (said agent supposedly tracked nuclear weapons) just to score some cheap political points against James Wilson
, the former ambassador to Gabon who embarrassed the Bush Administration over their use of a silly forgery with respect to Saddam's alleged attemped purchase of uranium from Niger.
Like Mark Kleiman, I hope it ain't so. I wish it weren't so. But there are too many stories in too many places for me to think it ain't so.
Story via CalPundit, Atrios, Hesiod, Tom Spencer, and probably several others I haven't read yet. Story ignored by Instapundit.
Insert your blind squirrel, stopped clock, or dog's ass cliché here...

Total Terrorism Information Awareness, the totalitarian idea proposed by convicted criminal (and therefore perfect for Shrubbery patronage sinecure) John Poindexter. Scuttlebutt is that Appropriations Committee chair Ted Stevens (R-porkaholic) is for defunding TIA, so it'll be deader than Joe Lieberman's presidential hopes.
