Keystone Terrorists

Tony Badran has the latest on Syria's transparent and laughably clumsy attempts to find a plausible "fall guy" for the murder of Pierre Gemayel. At least Damascus has enough sense to avoid blaming the Israelis for murdering a leader of the most historically pro-Israel political party in Lebanon.

Plausible depends on who you are trying to fool. Look how many folks got sucked into the "9/11 was a controlled demolition by Bush people" scenario. There is a sucker born every minute, never forget it.

Oh don't kid yourself, Michael. They WILL be blaming Israel and its "agents" any minute now...

You're behind the times. As I posted in the comments yesterday, the Syrian ambassador to the UN already blamed Israel.
