This Can't Be Right!

The InstaMan links to a suggestion that France is spying for Iraq? Ce ne'st pas possible!

Well, OK, there was this, but that was a long, long time ago, in a war that was far, far away.

UPDATE: It's his blogosphere; we're just posting in it. From USA Today, the day following Glenn's post:

U.S.: Iraqis know inspection sites
By John Diamond, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — U.S. intelligence suspects that Iraq is finding out in advance which sites United Nations weapons inspectors plan to visit, enabling Iraqis to clean up the areas, U.S. diplomatic and intelligence officials said Tuesday.

The three officials, speaking in separate interviews on condition of anonymity, said the United States doesn't know exactly how the information is being obtained. One official said Iraq might have bugged the inspectors or found members of the inspection team willing to pass on information....

NO MENTION of the French. Still, something seems to be happening.
