Has anyone noticed the amazing bit of news in today's NYT article on Ali Shalal Qaissi, the guy in the hood in the famous Abu Ghraib photo. No doubt there are skeletons in his closet, but what stuck out for me was this allegation:

He was forced to strip off all his clothes, then tied with his hands up high. A guard began writing on his chest and forehead, what someone later read to him as, "Colin Powell."

I'm not sure what that means, but I'm thinking it is not a compliment. These are soldiers brainwashed by FOX News and Rush Limbaugh. Perhaps this explains the timing and no-holds-barred nature of Larry Wilkerson's emergence. His boss (Powell) as the butt of one of the sick and abusive jokes that fueled the Abu Ghraib photos?

Is this old news? This is the first I've heard of it.

Or am I way off base here? If not, then I think this is something Kos should consider writing about. Unless I'm mistaken, he served under Powell. I wonder how he feels about it?

Bush IS NOT from Texas. Remember that. As James McMurtry and The Heartless Bastards sing:
I'm not from here
I just live here
can't see that it matters much
I read the papers and I watch the nightly news
who's to say I'm out of touch
I'm not from here
but people tell me
it's not like it used to be
they say I should have been here
back about ten years
before it got ruined by folks like me

Well, I won't acknowledge him being from CT just 'cause he was accidently born here.

Another great Texan -- Molly Ivins.
