Happy Fitzmas!

No doubt Irish political obsessives are eagerly following the Plame investigation, which recently dragged in the New York Times via the questionable past activities of reporter Judith Miller.

A few may also remember the forged Niger yellowcake documents which the Bush administration miraculously produced to 'prove' that Saddam was looking to develop nuclear weapons, and hence take the United States to war against Iraq. Talking Points Memo's Josh Marshall has been investigating the story behind the yellowcake forgeries when most of the mainstream press wouldn't , and has uncovered a good deal about what looks like an operation originating within the ranks of Neo-cons within the Bush administration itself. Quelle surprise! as they say.

And now that this sordid little tale seems about to intersect with the Plame investigation in an explosive way, TPM is most certainly the blog to keep an eye on over the next weeks and months. This is going to get 'interesting'.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
