Whatever. He's unembarrassable and doesn't really care what you think. He just wants to make his point and we're just going to have to listen to him as long as there are microphones and electricity. I'm not to impressed one way or another and I haven't bothered to find the three errors of fact he seems to have found with the docudrama.

I skimmed the report and then lost it. But the authors made sense. Still, I have a fundamental problem with this notion that perception is everything. Perception needs to be 20% and nothing more, if that. It is an objectively good that the world has been rid of Saddam Hussein, Libya as a WMD threat and the AQ Khan Network. If we are percieved to be the bad guys for unilaterally sticking our neck out, it's a price I'm willing to bear. That said, we are at the political limits of boots work so it's time to put on the diplomatic soft shoes. So dance Condi, dance.
