There’s been a decent bit of buzz over the 60 Minutes interview that ran last night with George Piro, Saddam’s Arabic‐speaking interrogator. To my mind, though, there wasn’t too much new information in the piece. This, however, while not new, is as alarming as it’s ever been:
out of 10,000 FBI agents, only about 50 speak Arabic.
You go to war with the FBI you have, to be sure. But the fact that the administration has spread these people as thinly as possible by opening new fronts in the struggle against terror at every opportunity is a truly dark legacy.
