01/26/2005: Interesting speculation.....
Bryan at Why Now? nominates his candidate for "evil genius behind Rumsfeld's private CIA", the "Strategic Support Branch" in the Pentagon that, according to reports I've read/heard is dabbling in human intelligence and a few other areas which have historically been the balliwick of the CIA:
This mess has "Jerry Crusader for Christ" Boykin written all over it, as the cut-off for "plausible deniability". General Boykin of "Delta Force" to the rescue, just like Somalia, the Iran hostage rescue, Waco - well I guess we aren't allowed to hear about the successes. "Bonkers" was brought on board to lead the hunt for Osama "what's his name", who can't be found because "he's hiding". I wonder if he's tried broadcasting "alley, alley, in free" along the Pakistani-Afghani border yet?Y'all remember Jerry, right? Lieutenant General William G. "My God can kick Allah's ass" Boykin, U.S. Army?
In any sort of decently run universe, Boykin would be out on his worthless fundamentalist ass a long time ago (collecting that three-quarters pay pension, yes, but that's a small price to pay for ridding the armed services of a dangerous wack job like Boykin). But the universe (obviously!) ain't decently run...
I gotta tell you, the longer you live, the more you look around, the more you realize, something is fucked up.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed. Results like these do not belong on the résumé of a Supreme Being. This is the kind of shit you'd expect from an office temp with a bad attitude. And just between you and me, in any decently-run universe, this guy would've been out on his all-powerful ass a long time ago.
