I spy nincompoops

New York Times' top story, top paragraph, top secret!:

"A classified memorandum by President Bushs national security adviser expressed serious doubts about whether Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki had the capacity to control the sectarian violence in Iraq and recommended that the United States take new steps to strengthen the Iraqi leaders position."

This was classified? This is how Stephen Hadley and his "senior aides" at NSC spend their days? Shhhh. Don't tell anyone, Mr. President, mum's the word, but we're starting to think that maybe Maliki doesn't have things under control.

Remember now, this is supersecret brainwork, for your eyes only -- a product of national security thinking that only qualified professionals could unravel. So don't let on, lest the media start snooping around over there and discover ... problems.

Our professional recommendation? Maybe we should help the prime minister. He just might need it.

... Are the paychecks in yet?

More. And pretty darned funny, too:
