Speaking Of Eye-Rack. . .
Things are going swimmingly over there. No, seriously, the speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Mahmoud al-Mashhadani escaped an attempted bomb attack unscathed. The disturbing part is this little detail:
Garver said he was not sure how the explosives made it so far into the Green Zone, which houses the Iraqi government, the U.S. and British embassies and thousands of foreign troops and private contractors. Anyone trying to enter the zone must pass through several checkpoints -- first to get into the complex, then to enter individual buildings.
If we can't protect the Green Zone, then that's pretty much it for us, isn't it. This is an inside job if there ever was one.
