I’m getting too old to put up with this garbage. The claim that Syria was building a nuclear facility is based solely on Israeli intelligence. Israeli intelligence are the people who didn’t know that Hezbollah was building a reinforced tunnel complex throughout south Lebanon despite constant overflights, satellite imagery, agents on the ground, and military watch towers and patrols along the border. I guess the Lebanese were using invisibility cloaks and using dwarfs to do the tunneling.

California Fire Update

The Union-Tribune’s San Diego Wildfires Blog has a Wildfire summary for the state, and a current fire map in PDF so you can zoom in to specific areas.

Disaster Tourist

TBogg explains why President Speed Bump should have stayed home.

You can show your concern with a video conference, a few stills of watching the coverage on television, and statement of concern. A statement that you don’t want to interfere with the recovery by showing up at ground zero and disrupting operations would be nice.

Buy A Clue

A quick scan of the headlines showed reports that the ever vigilant Homeland Security Department is warning of the possibility of explosives in shoes.

Well, they are new, so perhaps no one told them about Richard Reed, “the shoe bomber”, who was arrested in December of 2001, and is the reason you have had to take off your shoes and have them x-rayed to get on an airplane for about five freaking years.

Before these people start poring over their intelligence reports, maybe they should read a few newspapers or watch the evening news.

Update: Here’s the CBS report.
