Comments: America: Still Completely Fucking Nuts

This guy is bi-partisanly sociopathic and a Booz Allen alum.

Nothing suprising about this nomination but a little suprised it took them so long to find a way to slide this buffoon back into the higher echelons of the spy biz.

I think it was brilliant to pick someone who sounds like he was in Dr. Strangelove.

He said he was providing a personal assessment.

Based, not on one of those satellite thingies, but on a dowsing rod. "Here be WMD's."

They have to get busy redoing that crippling NIE on Iran and they got a guy who can be trusted to redo it right.

Always Mr.Negative about everything. The bright side of this is that we know we don't have to listen to a single thing this guy ever says about anything. Saves time.

IF ONLY it been Ollie, he's got good connections for crack.

New NIE: Saddam moved his WMD to Bin Laden's house in Teheran before the war.

Also: New intelligence from Bagram shows connection between 9/11 and the Turkish government.

"A spokesman for General Clapper's agency, David Burpee, said he could not provide further evidence to support the general's statement."

No, get it right dammit. What he said was "Evidence. We don't need no stinkin' evidence."

Clapper. Really, are you serious?

Presumablly Dennis Blair was only telling Obama what he wanted to hear. And didn't want to help exonerate the WMD loonies. Sad

My thoughts, exactly.

Holy crap!

Looks like we're going to need a bigger boat.

But notice O.'s statement. Who writes this junk? It's even more cliched, canned, and crappy than most political pronouncements. Do they have monkeys locked in a room typing out this garbage? Hmm...maybe not locked in a room, but locked in a lie.

This is an intelligence question. How many super tankers required to load daily oil flow from BP volcano in the Gulf of Mexico and where are they?
