Today is a day of oxymorons, dear worst-reader. We have US Intelligence and Too Dumb. Or it’s a day of dumb rearing its true face and what we see is Kim Kardashian’s left tit superimposed on the red, white and blue which is also superimposed on a xmas tree that has just exploded out of a sewer system that none of us knew was underneath the living room where we sit and watch hi-larry-us stop motion tv shows. So is the place some call the house of hell right in the middle of Walt Disney’s dreamboat. Or. Tis the season to be jolly. And. Think not of all those children that were riddled with bullets by a “mass” shooter that no one can seem to top. But I digress. It’s time to focus on more joyous things. Speaking of joy! My favourite stop motion xmas character is Rudolf (the communist-nosed) Reindeer and US Intelligence. Again. We’re combing the sands of kill-man-jar-oh in the hopes of finding promise and truth. And to think that another shooter is waiting in the wings as thought yesterday can never happen. Indeed. It never did. The only thing that happened is that Rudolf (the communist nosed) Reindeer said: “But. But you fell off that cliff.” And his budding chief of economic and military affairs responded: “Didn’t I ever tell you about Bumbles? Bumbles bounce!” And since we’re on the subject of quoting things. How ’bout the Der Spiegel article below. Check it out. And while doing so don’t forget the righteous premise of this worst-post: oxymoronic. Or something like that.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: In February 2004, you already had Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in your hands — he was imprisoned in in a military camp, but got cleared later as harmless by a US military commission. How could that fatal mistake happen?
Flynn (former US intelligence chief): We were too dumb. We didn’t understand who we had there at that moment. When 9/11 occurred, all the emotions took over, and our response was, “Where did those bastards come from? Let’s go kill them. Let’s go get them.” Instead of asking why they attacked us, we asked where they came from. Then we strategically marched in the wrong direction.
Rant on. -T
