Eenie Meanie, Chili Beanie, the Spirits are About to Speak....

Dick Cheney recently declared Britain's announced withdrawal from Iraq as a sign of continued progress, and the administration has always insisted that an increased body count proves how well we're doing, but this news should have right-wingers across the country proclaiming that victory is just a call to Mistress Cleo away:

Psychics were recruited by the Ministry of Defence to locate Osama Bin Laden's secret lair, it was claimed yesterday.

Newly declassified documents revealed that the MoD conducted an experiment to see if volunteers could 'see' objects hidden inside an envelope.

It is claimed the ministry hoped positive results would allow it to use psychics to 'remotely view' Bin Laden's base and also to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Although they use plenty of weasel words, the story states pretty clearly that there's documentation of the 2002 program's budget and mission. Maybe the Pentagon could just stencil "al Qaeda" on some guided missiles and let fly.
