There’s a new blog out there called The Command Post. It’s kind of a group news warblog, but the bias of the contributors is distinctly conservative and they can’t help but let it seep through. A lot.

So t.rev dropped me a line pointing out this post, which discusses the Fedayeen Saddam, Saddam’s — actually, they sound like his special forces units. The poster compares them to the NKVD, and to illustrate the nature of the NKVD, he links to… Delta Green. As in the game. He links to a discussion of how the NKVD battled a secret US intelligence group over Cthulhoid horrors.

To make the irony complete, the very next post calls the BBC to task for being out of touch with reality.
