Very sincere


The film “The Kiterunner” has been banned in Afghanistan, I assume by the Department of Irony.

In an interview on Fox, Bush says of the Iran NIE “I believe that the intelligence professionals are very sincere in their analysis. That should not say to people that Iran is not a threat. In other words—” And then Greta Van Susteren cut him off – in mid In Other Words!

Thus is the word “sincere” applied to the CIA for the very first time in the history of the agency. It is perhaps bittersweet to those intelligence professionals that it is being applied condescendingly by an unintelligence professional.
