Bob Ney is fresh out of jail and is wondering

Bob Ney is fresh out of jail and is wondering out loud why he, of all the criminals around the Bush Administration and the Republican Party, was one of the few who ended up in the slammer. He suggests it may relate to this old story about the Bush Administration's efforts to bury the peace efforts made by the Iranians to the Bush Administration, efforts made through Farsi-speaking Ney, and efforts which were increasingly embarrassing to the neocons, not to mention out of line with the settler-movement's instructions that Iran should be an American enemy. The Iranian offer appears to have made it as far as Elliot Abram's desk, from where, if you can believe it, it has failed to resurface. You might be forgiven for believing that Abrams was committing treason by failing to inform Rice of an offer that could do the real interests of the United States - as opposed to interests of the settler movement for which Abrams really works - a lot of good. Ney may very well have gone to jail to prevent him from talking about Iran.
