Okay, I know we can't talk about this bozo Howard Kaloogian forever. But this is just too good to pass up.
The San Francisco Chronicle
has a piece
about about Kaloogian's bamboozle. And it includes his latest excuse ...
The candidate said he hadn't recognized the error because "the military asked us to use our discretion and put things on the Internet that were nondescriptive ... (because) if we posted something that was easily identifiable, it could be a target."
In other words, it's the Army's fault. Or maybe the Marines. Who knows?
Maybe someone can help me even with the logic here. The military told us to use non-descriptive stuff. So we ended up putting up a picture from Istanbul. Believe me, I'm not trying to be dense. But I'm not even sure this new bamboozlement stands up on its own terms. I guess maybe they're saying that they looked for something so generic and non-descript that they didn't even recognize it. And that led them to posting a picture from a different country. Sounds like exactly the kind of doofus you want in Congress, right?
And, so if Kaloogian is walking down the street in Baghdad and snaps a few pics, the U.S. military doesn't want those man-on-the-street photos on the web because terrorists might use them for targeting? I really doubt insurgents are using this joker's website for targeting information.
They might not want him posting pictures of military installations and secure zones -- which seem to be the only places Kaloogian set foot. That makes sense. But obviously that's completely different from on the street snaps.
Let's face it. This guy's awash in a sea of his own bamboozles. He's fallen and he can't get up.
