hey did you hear the news today? the document of evidence made by the UK which the US presented to the UN the other day was shown to be really shoddy. they found a californian post-grad student's essay on the web, and they had taken whole pages from this guys essay and submitted it to the UN and suggested it was from official intelligence sources!

as if we didnt know they were bullshitting everyone, here's the ugly truth!

yes i heard about that. apparently british spies have great cut-and-paste techniques, but they are also quite lazy, because even the grammatical errors and typographical mistakes were copied into the british government's dossier. this must be embarrassing for tony blair, while trying to convince people that saddam has all these weapons of mass destruction!
