Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Corsi

While perusing the shelves of my local Borders bookstore last week I ran across a copy of the latest work by swifty outcast Jerome Corsi entitled “Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians.” My first reaction to seeing this piece on the shelf was “what is this guy up to now?” You may recall that Corsi played the role of Mr. Hyde to John O’Neill’s Dr. Jekyll during the past election cycle with their book Unfit for Command. Corsi was quickly blackballed by O’Neill after it was revealed that he made some utterly ridiculous comments on the FreeRepublic website. Well it would appear Corsi is up to his old tricks again as revealed by this insightful PG piece by Dennis Roddy. Bottom line, Corsi’s new book, which I profess that I have not and will not read, trys to blame Iran’s nuclear program on none other than American Democrats. Go figure.

Now it should be clear to anyone paying a lick of attention that Iran’s nuclear ambitions are indeed a real “grave and gathering threat” to not only the security and balance of power in the Middle East, but also to the national security of the U.S. Unfortunately, having someone like Corsi as the point man in pushing for Iranian Democratization does more damage than good. I am not quite sure how having someone who believes that…

“Islam is a peaceful religion as long as the women are beaten, the boys buggered and the infidels killed.”

“Ragheads are boy-bumpers as clearly as they are women-haters _ it all goes together.”

“Let’s see exactly why it isn’t the case that Islam is a worthless, dangerous Satanic religion? Where’s the proof to the contrary?”

…will carry any credibility with the people actually fighting for Democracy in Iran.
