Unsafe At Any Speed


I know the Rovians hate our freedoms, but this is crazy:

A vehicle carrying four members of a Canadian diplomatic mission in Iraq was fired on by U.S. forces inside Baghdad's Green Zone on Tuesday. No one was injured in the incident.

The vehicle was reportedly carrying Stewart Henderson, the Canadian chargé d'affaires in Iraq.

Again, this happened behind the barriers inside the green zone. That's the part of Baghdad that's supposed to be safe.

And despite all the crap that's been heaped on us by the likes of Paul Weyrich, Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson lately, maybe this wasn't an anti-Canuckistani vendetta at all.

Instead, maybe the trigger men actually mistook Mr. Henderson for that other Stewart.

As in Jimmy.

You know, that commie-pinko who was also known as George Bailey. The very old school American guy who wanted to help people instead of screwing and/or shooting them.

Update: Longtime reader and mega-contributor lenin's ghost makes an excellent point.....maybe they thought it was another, more modern Stewart, as in Jon.
