Get Bill of Occam on the line


Occam's razor usually is a good guide when conspiracies are rumored to be afoot. What then to make of the news that Zacarias Moussaoui had Nick Berg's email password and that the FBI questioned Berg about that fact?

The official explanation is coincidence.

That is just a tough sell even though I have no particular theory to offer in its place. All I know is that the official account of the Iraqi police holding Berg in Mosul more or less independently of American control never made any sense and now appears to be utterly false.

Oh for the days when all we had to worry about were interns, thongs, and blowjobs.
