Takes one to know one

The apparently unironic top summary of a Wall Street Journal op-ed by Ion Mihai Pacepa --

Take it from this old KGB hand: The left is abetting America's enemies with its intemperate attacks on President Bush.

Now his claim that as someone who used to stir up leftist agitation against US presidents, he sees the same tactic again. But then he says things like "For communists, only the leader counted, no matter the country, friend or foe" -- in his unconditional defence of George W. Bush. He never seems to have stopped to see how much he has tied himself in knots.

UPDATE 9 AUGUST: Not entirely surprisingly, Powerline's Hindrocket and Trunk team up to argue that the WSJ article proves that the young anti-war John Kerry was in fact a Soviet agent.
