It’s curious that Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi aka “Curveball” – the loopy informant relied upon so heavily by the Bush administration to bolster their case for war against Iraq – has now suddenly reappeared in the news. For those of us who weren’t entirely comatose during the previous decade, the revelation that this unstable character was completely full of shit isn’t exactly news.
It is however highly amusing that he’s apparently been fired quite recently from several fast food joints in Germany because of his pathological lying. The man was deemed unfit to work at Mickey D’s, but his creative imagination helped to kill several hundred thousand innocent Iraqis. What a deeply strange and perverted world we inhabit.
