UPDATE: Don't take my word for anything. Go read Juan Cole on the subject.
Remember how I said I would be following the Turkish invasion into Iraq all day, and then I didn't post on it again? That's because no details ever emerged.
That's because it didn't happen.
The AP and Reuters ran with a rumor from the DEBKAfiles. A gossip column for the intel world. Frankly, had I known that was MSNBC's ultimate source I would never have posted about it. But it was a gutcheck - and i know just how jumpy I am about the chess match we are playing with Iran and Turkey with a checkers man at the board.
