Did you read the snapshot?
C.I. is pissed and I don't blame her one bit. A person with no legal background is declaring certain things to be unconstitutional in Iraq and he doesn't know what he's talking about. It's stupid Reider Vissar. He's a dumb ass.
I looked over his writing and I'm not the expert C.I. is but I also have my legal degree and do practice. Vissar doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.
And what it really reminded me of was all the time C.I. tries to be nice to idiots. Do you remember during Plamegate? When that ridiculous woman (C.I. called her "toejam" at The Common Ills) kept saying no law was broken and that the law was being misinterpreted and one lie after another.
Who was right?
The liar or C.I.?
Same with the SOFA, same with all of it.
And that's because she knows the law.
So for some idiot like Reider Vissar to blabber on about things he doesn't know and to get it so wrong is really frustrating.
I really can't get over, reading Vissar's garbage, how he doesn't know a damn thing he's talking about. And yet he prattles on.
There are things he thinks are in the Constitution that aren't in the Constitution (I'm referring to the Iraqi constitution). He's a complete idiot. Which would explain his being tight with Nir Rosen.
Reider Vissar might be able to analyze a mood or a historical moment, but he has no concept of the law and, if this wasn't so serious ("this" is the political crisis in Iraq), it would be funny.
One of the most important things I've learned from C.I. and Elaine, when you don't know what you're talking about, don't weigh in. You don't have to have an opinion on everything. If you did, you'd be a gas bag on TV. Maybe that's Reidar Visser's goal?
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
