The AFP Outs Livni

The headline of the Agence France Presse story: “Israeli foreign minister admits she was Mossad agent.” A confession! But this has never been a secret: it was discussed at length, for example, by Livni herself more than a year ago in the cover story of an obscure publication called the New York Times Magazine.

In other news, the AFP has uncovered evidence that Senator John McCain was a Navy pilot during the Vietnam War. Details remain sketchy, but he apparently was shot down and spent several years in captivity. The AFP hopes to have more information soon.
