That raped puppy whimpering noise is just the sound of Andrew Sullivan's achy-breaky heart

"I’m still absorbing this news and don’t want to vent immediately, because there is still part of me that simply cannot believe that president Obama has already ordered covert action in Libya on one side in a civil war . . .
It’s so surreal, so discordant with what the president has told the American people, so fantastically contrary to everything he campaigned on. . . . I simply cannot believe it." -- Obama Sends CIA Into Libya Ground Operations; Andrew Sullivan Stunned : The Other McCain

If he had on a dress and a toe-tag, he'd look just like Peggy Noonan. In a tutu and a toe-tag, he'd be James Wolcott.

Your Say

Is there really anyone naive enough to believe that our operators have not been working in Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Somalia, Algeria, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Lebanon, Jordan, Bahrain and all of the other Middle Eastern countries for decades? Maybe people thought that we've been spending $3.5 billion annually (plus money hidden in our military budgets) to insert moles into Leichtenstein for all these years. Even though the majority of our intel is now gathered electronically and via satellite, it is a certainty that ground contacts have been nurtured throughout the region. Past history would indicate a preference for upper level government, business and military personnel as well as student activist types. These are the same preferences that the KGB (now SVR) exhibited inside the US.

It is not the sound of Andrew Sullivan's achy-breaky heart, it is his normal condition of procidentia recti.

He gets this from blowing everything out of his ass on a daily basis, which is why he wears crotchless suits.

And if he was wearing the toe tag, knee pads and a snorkel, he'd be Keefie. Welcome to the flyover country reality show, where the last few tools and fools learn that Obama is a shameless gamester and that all heads of state play "I spy" for keepsies.

With the way this administration runs things I'd be surprised if we didn't have covert operators working on both sides, and the administration didn't even know it.

I was wrong-- you do deserve a Pulitzer.
