I see that Ralph has still not found the time or energy to 
consider Libya except as an outlet for his crossposting instincts.

The other day he asked me to refute the ineffable Pepe Escobar. He 
has now told RT that he is "95 percent" sure that the commander of 
Tripoli, who was the victim of CIA extraordinary rendition, is now 
a CIA agent without any evidence except his sordid feelings. I am 
95 percent sure myself that Escobar is a bucket of shit and that 
Ralph Johansen needs to think hard about why he is finds him an 
authority on Libya.
