« A Chris Shays Republican! | Main | Maybe Lugar And Kerry *Did* Mess Up »

Now I know why we haven't caught UBL yet. I am seeing the following:

ISI Agent #1: "There's something odd about that 'woman'."
ISI Agent #2: "I don't see anything."

ISI Agent #1: "She's got an awfully low voice."
ISI Agent #2: "So?"

ISI Agent #1: "And she's terribly tall."
ISI Agent #2: "That doesn't matter."

ISI Agent #1: "And," (ripping off UBL's wig) "she's a MAN!"
ISI Agent #2: "Well - nobody's perfect."


Oh heck, you beat me. My comment was going to be "Nobody's perfectly safe".

I was picturing something more along the lines of a soldier asking "Are there any women here?" in John Cleese's voice.


OBL better not travel to Palestine or to Saudi Arabia. You can get in a lot of trouble in those places dressed like that.


Are the *beards* not a bit of a giveaway? There are two possibilities here:

1. Despite having burned down barber shops for committing the sin of cutting the beard within a fist's width of the chin, Osama and gang have decided that this is one of the bits of the Koran that's more or less optional.


2. The Christian Science Monitor will believe more or less any old rubbish as long as they're allowed to look all gee-whiz and James-Bond by sourcing it to "the intelligence community"

My money on this one is on the same side as that of George Galloway's libel lawyers.


Well, "to avoid detection by satellite" is pretty broad, and probably does not require, for example, a fetching wiggle in your walk.

As to beards, burkhas">http://webpub.allegheny.edu/employee/i/iroy/fall%25202003/CA%2520120%2520FA03/CA120%2520assts%2520FA03/NYTIMes-burkha%2520ad.jpg&imgrefurl=http://webpub.allegheny.edu/employee/i/iroy/fall%25202003/CA%2520120%2520FA03/CA120%2520assts%2520FA03/CA120%2520written%2520asst2%2520Oct%252029.htm&h=761&w=480&sz=39&tbnid=44DtQXCKDIsJ:&tbnh=140&tbnw=88&start=2&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dburkha%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN">burkhas might cover that point.
