Dana Priest balances her devastating expose of CIA secret torture sites with evidence of what seems to me to be great CIA work in foiling and monitoring terrorism across the globe.

IRAN ON SELF-DESTRUCT? Here’s hoping. Ahmadinejad is pushing the accelerator on Islamofascism, purging all his opponents within the regime, and provoking pushback even among the clerical despots who dominate the “parliament.” Money quote:

In a sign of divisions at the top of the clerical establishment, the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has until now supported Mr Ahmadinejad, said “irregularities” in the government’s behaviour would not be tolerated.

It’s not impossible for the Iranian elite to split. What’s clear is that negotiating with the current leadership is pointless.
