It's funny because it's so true.
So true. :D Other truths come via Patrick Martin (WSWS):
The Libyan National Council, the Benghazi-based group that speaks for the rebel forces fighting the Gaddafi regime, has appointed a long-time CIA collaborator to head its military operations. The selection of Khalifa Hifter, a former colonel in the Libyan army, was reported by McClatchy Newspapers Thursday and the new military chief was interviewed by a correspondent for ABC News on Sunday night.
Hifter’s arrival in Benghazi was first reported by Al Jazeera on March 14, followed by a flattering portrait in the virulently pro-war British tabloid the Daily Mail on March 19. The Daily Mail described Hifter as one of the “two military stars of the revolution” who “had recently returned from exile in America to lend the rebel ground forces some tactical coherence.” The newspaper did not refer to his CIA connections.
McClatchy Newspapers published a profile of Hifter on Sunday. Headlined “New Rebel Leader Spent Much of Past 20 years in Suburban Virginia,” the article notes that he was once a top commander for the Gaddafi regime, until “a disastrous military adventure in Chad in the late 1980s.”
Hifter then went over to the anti-Gaddafi opposition, eventually emigrating to the United States, where he lived until two weeks ago when he returned to Libya to take command in Benghazi.
The McClatchy profile concluded, “Since coming to the United States in the early 1990s, Hifter lived in suburban Virginia outside Washington, DC.” It cited a friend who “said he was unsure exactly what Hifter did to support himself, and that Hifter primarily focused on helping his large family.”
To those who can read between the lines, this profile is a thinly disguised indication of Hifter’s role as a CIA operative.
So it's another CIA plot. No surprise there, right. Okay, Fringe was on Friday night. And?
It was the alternate universe. I'd forgotten Oliva was pregnant. It's Peter's child.
She gets kidnapped.
Turns out Walternet was behind it all.
Also her partners learned, from Walter, that she was replaced by real Olivia and they began to wonder what happened to their Broyles (Walternet killed him and sent his corpse to the other side) and what else Walter's been lying about.
One other thing, that Oliva has a mother. I don't trust that woman.
Okay, quickly. Dallas and everyone listed worked on the latest edition
