A Superb New Fiction Story: Christians In Iraq
Professor McChrystal

Crusaders!

Seymour Hersh is on to us.

He then alleged that Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who headed JSOC before briefly becoming the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, and his successor, Vice Adm. William McRaven, as well as many within JSOC, "are all members of, or at least supporters of, Knights of Malta...."

"Many of them are members of Opus Dei," Hersh continued. "They do see what they're doing -- and this is not an atypical attitude among some military -- it's a crusade, literally. They seem themselves as the protectors of the Christians...."

"They have little insignias, these coins they pass among each other, which are crusader coins," he continued.

So, in other words, one of these two things is true:

A)  Somebody showed him a challenge coin and spun him a yarn, which he swallowed whole.

B)  There's a conspiracy involving the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and JSOC.

I'll be really hurt if it's (B), and nobody thought to invite me.
