Lebanese babe protestors, make room for Persian whistleblowers
While there are far many more data points supporting the babe theory of political movements in Lebanon, I still hope the single case of Azeri whistleblower Sibel Edmonds inspires others like her to come forward. Bearing in mind that she is 37, you can imagine what a bombshell she must have been during her prime.*
Read more about what she claims is afoot here in The American Conservative or in the Times (UK) article here. (Links via Steve.)
* Note that she went to George Washington University for undergrad -- for anyone about to apply to graduate school, the upper-middle class exotic hotties who pack the Gelman Library are reason enough to consider GWU. I visited there as a senior in high school, and I resolved after the campus tour to not apply. There were too many gorgeous girls everywhere we went, so I knew I would get little studying done. But if you're in your mid-20s, undergrad girls are more receptive, so it might be worth it to go there now.
