Nibble Nibble Nibble at the News

Have I men­tioned praeter­nat­ur­al? I’m find­ing it fair­ly inter­est­ing. word­can­dlemage, you in par­tic­u­lar might like it.

Cat­ti­ness from Mark Kleiman:
Giv­en the Pres­i­den­t’s doc­u­ment­ed capac­i­ty to pack enor­mous num­bers of words into tiny amounts of mean­ing, he will prob­a­bly have exhaust­ed six­ty min­utes by the time he fin­ish­es answer­ing the ques­tion, “Where did you go and what did you do imme­di­ate­ly after hear­ing the news of the sec­ond WTC crash, and for the rest of that day?” which will leave him no time to answer the next ques­tion: “Who autho­rized the evac­u­a­tion of all bin Laden fam­i­ly mem­bers and oth­er promi­nent Sau­di cit­i­zens from the Unit­ed States before the FBI had a chance to inter­view any of them?”

And a love­ly bit from dindin in dot_sex_snark:
That one just had me too con­fused to cat. It was as if some­one had one of those wand thin­gies in front of me and just twirled it around and around while I swat­ted at it until I fell over backwards.

More from the hor­ror at Abu Ghraib:
One civil­ian con­trac­tor was accused of rap­ing a young male pris­on­er but has not been charged because mil­i­tary law has no juris­dic­tion over him.

Fine, then. Charge him under Iraqi law. That should apply, right?
