Mullah Watch

Callimachus doesn't get enough attention. So today I'm going to give him some.

He has a thoroughly brilliant post up on his blog about Iran and nuclear weapons. I'm going to excerpt the first part because it's fun.
Does anybody think any U.S. administration isn't spying on Iranian nukes? Does anybody hope we're not? And did anybody read Seymour Hersh's recent article and say, “Gee, I had no idea the U.S. would have a contingency plan for taking out Iranian nuclear weapons. I never would have dreamed that the U.S. simply wouldn't allow Iran to get all the radiation bombs it wants, and use them as it pleases. How awful!”

Well, if there is such a “somebody,” he probably lives in Europe.

Now go read the rest of it. Seriously. Go read it right now.
