I wanted to believe it, I guess. Then I read Michael Ledeen's take on the "safe house" documents and started to think that I got ahead of myself. Ledeen thinks that the docs are actually a misdirection perpetrated by the Iranians, which kind of makes sense. And which, if correct, also illustrates why I'm not in government, intelligence or the political media. Says Ledeen:
I think the Iranians put out this sort of nonsense so that we’ll have trouble figuring out what’s real. And by the way, it wasn’t found in Zarqawi’s house, contrary to the triumphant announcement from the office of the Iraqi prime minister. So it’s certainly not a Last Testament. It’s just nonsense.
I would like to think that one of us has the right answer, and I would place my bets on Michael if I were you.
