Robert Fisk offers up an interview with what he asserts is an anonymous American intelligence officer. Pretty boring stuff, frankly. Al-Qaeda is getting tip-offs from some parts of Pakistani intelligence. Al-Qaeda is using communicating by messenger rather than electronically to avoid detection. Not exactly news. But there is a nice "please keep me employed bit" at the end:
The American officer also had a low opinion of the Western journalists he met at Bagram. "They just hung around our base all day. Whenever we had some special operation, we'd offer the journalists some facility to go on patrol with our special forces and off they'd go – you know, 'we're on patrol with the special forces' – and they wouldn't realise we were stringing them along to get them out of the way."Don't read the other papers, folks; keep buying us.
UPDATE: CalPundit offers some reasons for thinking that Fisk has made up this interview. (I should have caught this sooner, but I spent most of Friday and Saturday moving office. In the middle of the term. But since it involves losing the boss from hell, I do not mind at all.)
