Michael Goldfarb noted some Unprecedented Stupidity at HuffPo. Seriously, it’s some good stuff.
I was all set to dig into it myself, but John at Op-For basically covered all the bases I was going for, so go read what he has to say as well.
One thing: Who would have ever guessed that regular old fuel oil was some sort of shadowy secret plot?
Also: The standard “this is what you get when an english professor writes about the military” rule is in effect. But, seriously, this is some of the worst writing I’ve seen from someone claiming to be a writer of any kind. Not the facts or the knowledge of the subject or the general point. The actual writing itself. It reads like the crap you find on most message boards.
