Lost in Translation

Here's Tony Snow responding to the Iraq Study Group's criticism that the government lacks sufficient Arabic translators:
You don't snap your fingers and have the Arabic speakers you need overnight.
Two points. First, it's been over five years since 9/11, which hardly qualifies as "overnight". Second, the government would actually have a better stock of War on Terror translators if they hadn't spent the past eight or so years systematically purging their ranks of homosexual linguists.

Some things are just worse than terrorism, I suppose.
