Remember when George W. Bush told us this about Vladimir Putin: "I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy….I was able to get a sense of his soul." This week Bush's Pentagon charged that Russia had given Saddam Hussein intelligence about US troops' plans in the opening days of the current war (an allegation Russia denies). And, as Kos points out, Putin appears to be a plagiarist: "[A] pair of researchers at the Brookings Institution, a Washington DC think tank, established that the President's academic credentials were based on a dissertation he had lifted in part verbatim from the Russian translation of a management study written by two professors at the University of Pittsburgh in 1978." If Bush did see the man's soul, the eerie thing is he must've liked what he saw.
