Main Question or Discussion Point

This image is behind the text of each page of the introduction (the "Transmittal Message") of the CIA's recent report on WMD in Iraq (the Duelfer report).

So, better living through chemistry or serious sleep deprivation?

Some speculations as to the subject of the image

More on Duelfer's avant garde government document style

Also here:
I must say I'm impressed by Duelfer's professional acumen. The Zeiss Planetarium projection instrument is really the best way to place someone inside the mind of middle eastern dictators. Obviously for far east dictators like Kim Jong Il, you'd want to use the Morgan Planetarium projection device. But the Zeiss is definitely the way to go with Saddam.

This is really neat. The Lucy in the Sky stanza was hilarious :rofl:

The thingy (with the missile wrapped around its neck) looks a lot like something I saw on an episode of the X-Files : a mutant man-worm.

Is this report sold in bookstores ? Will I find it at a Barnes & Noble ?
