Alan Greenspan is going senile

Or so it appears. He is claiming "the Iraq war is largely about oil." Everyone knows that only the dirty fucking hippies say such things. This is a discredited, crackpot, tin-foil conspiracy theory, worthy only of ridicule. Serious, mainstream sane people know that the Iraq war was really about freeing our Iraqi friends from the grips of an evil dictator and ensuring peace and stability in the Middle East region. Oil has nothing to do with it.

Therefore Alan Greenspan must be either a leftist commie crackpot hippie conspiracy theorist, or a victim of a terrible, debilitating old-age brain disease which only started to take effect once he resigned his post as Fed Chairman last year.

Of course, there's always the small possibility that he's a pretty bright guy, a lifelong conservative Republican, who is now free to speak his mind.

hmm. I'm guessing he got a very angry call from the WH.

And I would assume we can take his actual feelings to be those which were expressed in a book that took him 18 months (at least) to put together. Not like he didn't have a chance to correct any errors during that time, with multiple editors, galley reviews, etc.

Mr. Greenspan might want to take a look outside, see if he notices any conspicuously inconspicuous automobiles or persons in his neighborhood ... "accidents" sometimes "happen" to older people, doncha know.

How unselfish? How come we don't see the same unselfishness in Darfur? And BTW who is the worlds most upopular guy that has put Hitler in the 2nd place ? Must be hard to guess.
