The anus of responsibility

"Mistakes were made." That's the nonsense we hear from both the British and the American investigations tasked to uncover why intelligence went awry in the run-up to the Iraq war. Of course, if the "mistakes" keep running in the same direction, then what we are dealing with are not mistakes but lies.

The mysterious blogger known as Xymphora today offered a fine summary of this situation: "The reports, coming out at the same time and with almost identical bullshit, might as well have been excreted from the same anus."
