British student qualifies for the CIA

At least that’s what you might think if you see how Colin Powell “researches” the stuff he presents to the UN security council: “Cambridge don Glen Rangwala, an expert on Iraq, said the bulk of the Government’s 19-page document was copied, without acknowledgement, from an article in Middle East Review of International Affairs by Ibrahim al-Marashi, a student at the Monterey Institute of International Studies.” (The Mirror)
The really depressing part is this: “Dan Plesch, from the Royal United Services Institute for Defence Studies in London, told Channel 4: “This appears to be obsolete academic analysis dressed up as the best MI6…can produce on Saddam.””. And this will be enough “evidence” to drop the bombs.
The land of the free sure has come a long way…
