SF Weekly has an interesting profile of Ibrahim al-Marashi, whose paper "Iraq: Its Infrastructure of Concealment, Deception and Intimidation" was famously plagiarized by UK intelligence and reworded to make a smoking gun for Secretary of State Powell's prewar UN presentation. Al-Marashi, who at the end indicates he regrets his pro-war stance, makes some interesting tactical comments on how to remove all nuance and complexity from your thesis in order to do TV and radio standups.
