ASSHOLE OR IDIOT?

A WORLD RULED BY ARMS DEALERS
“At the Khuderbegainov trial I met an old man from Andizhan. Two of his
children had been tortured in front of him until he signed a confession
on the family’s links with Bin Laden. Tears were streaming down his
face. I have no doubt they had as much connection with Bin Laden as I
do. This is the standard of the Uzbek intelligence services.”

“Either way, I don’t know how much longer we can afford to have the
reputation of the United States tarnished while we ponder the endless
“idiot or asshole?” debate.”
