Another Shock: UN Employee Questioned Re: British Consulate Bombing

Wow! It's a good thing we don't have John Bolton as Ambassador to the UN! That could alienate these guys and cause them to hate the West or somethin'!

A Dutch national employed with the U.N. weapons inspection agency has been detained for questioning in connection with Thursday's explosions outside the British Consulate in New York, a United Nations official said.

Police said two "improvised explosive devices" made from "novelty-type grenades" exploded in front of the building that houses the consulate.

The detainee works at the world body's weapons inspection agency as an analyst, the official said. Another U.N. source said the man is a satellite imagery analyst.

The FBI is not calling the man a suspect, said spokesman Jim Margolin.

Agent Margolin added, however, that the FBI generally doesn't call things by their proper names, prefering a made-up language similar to the nonesensical poetry of Dr. Seuss. He did allow that FBI is now calling the man a "three-legged multi-pronged semi-amorphous gizzederbok," meaning he'll be arrested imminently.

I hate to note the obvious, but the fact that the media and FBI are not jumping to reassure us that the man is not Islamic sort of makes me suspect... eh, I guess we'll know soon enough.

Thanks to Andy the Squirrel, who really hates the f'n' UN.
