He's kidding, right?

Eric Alterman has his snark up in today's Altercation. Not only does he a have list of Tenet's foibles and/or possible reasons for resignation but he wonders aloud treasonous thoughts

Is Bush an Al Qaida Plant? I’m not one to jump to conclusions but the circumstantial evidence is hard to ignore. Take a look:

1. He’s destroying the military, by overstretching its resources and cannabalizing its trainers.

2. He’s consorting with spies for the Axis of Evil.

3. He may be revealing the identities of CIA agents (or at least tacitly encouraging those who do).

4. He’s coddling “terrorists” in Iraq.

5. He’s pursuing a policy deliberately designed to stir up hatred in the Arab world.

6. He’s helping bin Laden recruit more terrorists and Al Qaida to fully reconstitute itself.

7. He’s setting captured terrorists free.

8. He seems to think up a new reason to fight someone else almost every two weeks. (complete thesis)

9. He’s sucking up to France.

10. Oh, and he’s trying to undermine all those silly western freedoms that the Al-Qaida folks find so annoying.

Go read the original version. It has links and things that make it funny in a wonkish way.(Somehow I think Mr. Alterman is gonna' get in trouble for this...)
