ASSHOLE OF THE DAY
Fittingly, the first winner in the Texsanity ASSHOLE of the DAY award is none other than that miserable excuse for humanity, Robert Fisk. The terminally self-loathing Fisk picks up the award fro revealing the name of the Iraqi judge presiding in the Saddam Hussein trial.
Perhaps someone can convince the natives to administer another vicious beating in recognition of the event. Bobby knows he deserves it, just ask him.
Runner-up: Chris Lahane
Debating Christopher Hitchens on Scarborough Country tonight (note to self: NEVER agree to debate Hitchens), Lahane responded to being asked whether he agreed with the FAT BASTARD that the Iraqi terrorist beheading squads were equivalent to the Minutemen by saying that Bush has no strategy in Iraq and it is obvious that Hitchens is an "apologist" for the Bush Administration!
Only on a day when Robert Fisk outed a judge presiding over the trail of a mass-murderer thus targeting him for execution would Lahane not take the top spot. Not to worry though Chris, if you've taken a job trying to defend Fahrenheit 666 then you'll have plenty of additional opportunities to be ASSHOLE OF THE DAY!
HOLY SHIT BATMAN
Not that we didn't know this instinctively but now (via Instapundit, via Fox News) we have direct evidence of Iranian government involvement in the terror bombings in Iraq:
"American and Iraqi joint patrols, along with U.S. Special Operations (search) teams, captured two men with explosives in Baghdad on Monday who identified themselves as Iranian (search) intelligence officers, FOX News has confirmed.
Senior officials said it was previously believed that Iran had officers inside Iraq stirring up violence, but this is the first time that self-proclaimed Iranian intelligence agents have been captured within the country."
Which means that Iranian government agents, not just jihadists infiltrating Iraq while the Iranians remain willfully ignorant but GOVERNMENT AGENTS, have most likely directly responsible for the murder of American troops.
The Iranians are playing an extraordinarily (for them) dangerous game - wars have been started over less than this. The mullahs have apparently become unhinged.
Their continued meddling indicates to me several things 1) their nuclear program is apparently more advanced than we suspect 2) they are extremely worried that a free Iraq will destabilize their rule within Iran and 3) they believe that the continued instability in Iraq will cause the election of Kerry who will be less inclined to conduct covert or overt operations against their Islamo-fascist state.
It's time stop messing around with these maniacs and start working with the dissidents within Iran to topple the regime.
