Norman Mailer: Not Only Did Republicans Plant the Koran-Flush False Story, They Also Instigated the Riots

I'm beginning to become increasingly distresed to be linked by the Huffington Compost, which seems to be little else but vapid posts about nothing at all or else batshit-crazy screeds by certifiable lunatics:

At present, I have a few thoughts I can certainly not prove, but the gaffe over the Michael Isikoff story in Newsweek concerning the Koran and the toilet is redolent with bad odor. Who, indeed, was Isikoff's supposedly reliable Pentagon source? One's counter-espionage hackles rise. If you want to discredit a Dan Rather or a Newsweek crew, just feed them false information from a hitherto reliable source. You learn that in Intelligence 101A.

...

As for the riots at the other end, on this occasion, they, too, could have been orchestrated. We do have agents in Pakistan, after all, not to mention Afghanistan.

Obviously, I can offer no proof of any of the above.

Shut up, really?

There still resides, however, under my aging novelist's pate a volunteer intelligence agent, sadly manque. He does suggest that the outcome was too neat. It came out too effectively for one side, one special side. At the age of eighty-two I do not wish to revive old paranoia, but Lenin did leave us one valuable notion, one, at any rate. It was "Whom?" When you cannot understand a curious matter, ask yourself, "Whom? Whom does this benefit?" Dare I suggest that our Right has just gained a good deal by way of this matter? In every covert Department of Dirty Tricks, whether official, semi-official, or off-the-wall, great pride is best obtained by going real deep into down-and-dirty-land—Yeah! Expedite the consequences.

See the Day By Day Cartoon below.

I think Chris Muir needs to update.

RNC Dirty-Tricksters Disguised As Muslims Provoked Riots in Afghanistan and Pakistan-- It Might Be True (R)!

Thanks, I suppose, to Chickpea. Although this sort of lunatic paranoia is dispiriting.

I am almost filled with heart-ache, I don't mind confessing.
