#1 Only Al Jizzwad or it's ilk would have this clown on staff.

I wouldn't be surprised to have his name enter the english language as a cognate for "lying jerk".

Yeah, that's the ticket!

#2 It's good to see he's found a job, after he tried to surrender to the coalition forces and was told to go away. ;)
I guess "shock and awe" means knocking the finals of "Iraqi Idol" off of the air.

#3 With respect to Israeli cooperation with the US, I question whether we have provided them with JDAM's for the Lebanon and Syria campaign. If not, why not? No reason to allow unnecessary casualties among non-combatants.

#4 A JDAM isa bolt-on guidance package. I feel sure the Israelis have some, even if they had to build them at home. Probably not too hard, once you know the basics. And the Israelis definitely have spooks working the US defense contractor beat.

#5 Mojo

You are talking about Israel. That is the
country where most major US technology companies
have laboratories in it, the country who has or had more scientist researchers than all the Muslim world combined (source: a memo from that Ahmadist who got the Nobel Prize in physics), a country who is plenty of the material (Jews) who has produced dozens of scientific Nobel Prizes, Field medalists, most of thebig guns in Manhattan project and half of the top chess players. They don't need stinking spooks to make JDAMs.
