Investigator's Blackwater Ties Scrutinized: Today's Cartoon

Wow. I mean, even by the Bush Administration's standards... WOW!

Personally, I'm not sure which is worse, the fact that the U.S. State Department's Inspector General had to recuse himself from a probe into Blackwater after being TOLD that his own brother works for the embattled security firm... or that someone who doesn't even know what his own brother does for a living could become the State Department's "top investigator" in the first place.

You know, I wonder if it was really necessary for Mr. Krongard to inform the House Oversight Committee of his decision to disqualify himself from investigating Blackwater; when according to this revelation, he apparently never did to begin with.

In defense of the Inspector General, I will say that in order to conduct an investigation, one needs to rely upon their "intelligence"... which in this case is obviously in short supply.
