DNC SURPRISE….Four weeks ago, John Judis, Spencer Ackerman, and Massoud Ansari reported in The New Republic that the administration was turning the screws on the Pakistanis to round up an al-Qaeda bigshot before the election. That seemed plausible to me, but the additional specification that they had been told the capture should be announced on “the first three days of the Democratic National Convention” seemed like a bit of a stretch.

Silly me. The Pakistanis, apparently eager to please, have done their part right on time.

Scary, isn’t it? Maybe it’s time to get measured for a tinfoil hat after all.
