Dead Parrots and Misfiring Missiles

The Washington Post compares the latest Pentagon spin to Monty Python's "Dead Parrot" sketch. The $85 million dollar antimissile test that failed this week when the missile refused to work isn't really a failure. Not according to the brass who's brass is on the line to make it work. They say the military simply couldn't "complete the test [they] had planned." In other news, the same guy declares Pearl Harbor was a stunning victory for parking battleships for long term, underwater storage. (WashPost)
