The Unbearable Lightness of Wishful Thinking

I have always suspected that any person who indulges too much in wishful thinking is the best material for a future fellow traveler.

Prof. Barry Rubin of GLORIA Center got on a case of an interesting interview Mahmoud the Mad gave to ABC.

In my opinion, George Stephanopoulos of ABC tried his best to put some words he desperately wanted to hear in the mouth of Mahmoud the Mad. Not very successfully, I suggest.

Even more disturbing is the response of the global media to this experiment.

Worthy reading.
