I don’t normally cover news stories here, but this one is so fantastically ridiculous that it needs linking to. According to the Los Angeles Times we got our primary intel that precipitated the invasion of Iraq from a Burger King employee in Germany code named “Curveball.” Allow me to let that sink in for a few seconds…
My favorite quote from the article, “‘He always lied,’ said a fellow Burger King worker.” Now, if Curveball couldn’t even be trusted by his fellow burger jockeys to make a proper Whopper, then why did we place so much trust in him? I find it greatly disturbing that a guy who was paid to say, “Would you like fries with that?” on a full-time basis was our go to guy regarding Iraq. What the hell kind of Mickey Mouse operation are we running here?
Big Brother? Our government is more like a special needs student named, “Skippy.” This would be really funny if it wasn’t SO tragic.
