Random questions, not so random answers...
Q: Who forged the infamous 'Niger documents' that made Blair look so silly?
A: Michael Ledeen (allegedly - via Juan Cole)
[Wikipedia also has a good entry on the wonderfully named 'Yellowcake Forgery' which repeats the same allegation about the rather over-excitable Neo-con. Funny how things take their time to unravel... but unravel they always do in the end. The legal 'advice' given to Blair in March 2003 being another good example.]
Q: How many Filipinos work on US bases in Iraq?
[This is despite the fact that the Philippine government has apparently banned its citizens from working there. This is also despite the fact that there is an unemployment rate somewhere in the region of 70% in Iraq. For comparison, there are some 12,000 Korean civilian workers on US bases in South Korea, or there were until the US started cutting back.]
