Update:  hoax confirmed

Someone please tell me that  Juan Cole has been hoaxed: self-described former Guiliani and future McCain adviser plans casino in the Green Zone.

“What happens in the Green Zone stays in the Green Zone” ; confessional representation in employment ; off-track betting on “camel races”; “a sauna, a golf course can transform a people” ; a mosque and muezzin calling to prayer five times a day in the casino. I’m not buying it. No one survives into adulthood with this combination of greed and obtuseness. Besides, I think I recognize this guy from somewhere.
