No Green Zone Kinkos?

Al-Zarqawi's dead mug in a frame presented to world is a little much. Ya know if they could, Rumsfeld and the gang would have loved to put the dude's head on a stake (think Lord of the Flies.) But these are kindler, gentler times, and the Pentagon does have a well-funded matting and frame shop.

I know a wee bit about marketing and public relations, and I think the picture laminated on a nice piece of foamcore would have been a better choice. Understated and serious. Kinkos does a bang up job, and it works great for tradeshows. Oh, and this was Plan B--using a page from Jenna Bush's scrap book to prove to us that the dude was indeed dead.

Brother, they don't about no Bin Laden. It's too bad they didn't follow Brangelina's lead and offer an exclusive to People. We could use the dough.

Do they really need to release these photos in this manner anyway? Leak them like respectable public servants, my god. Rememember those pictures of Saddam's sons Ebay and Ixnay? Man, I couldn't eat for like an hour after seeing those.

Those would make great coasters.
And on them you could write, "If you look like this guy, quit drinking!"
