American secrets to the Axis of Evil? Who cares?

OK, so it turns out that America’s main man in Iraq was sending American secrets to Iran over at the Axis of Evil, and that someone in U.S. government was illegally giving these secrets to him.

This story is (very slowly) working its way through the media, but there’s no urgency or excitement. Another little Middle East scandal, tee hee. Aren’t those guys funny over there?

Besides getting rid of a few people in the defense department immediately, and President Bush this fall, there really needs to be some turnover among our opinion leaders.

The Chalabi story isn’t causing a buzz because practically the whole media establishment was complicit, especially the foreign-policy fatheads. The only noise you’re going to be hearing about this thing is the discreet swish of ass-covering.
