The Taliban are the Intellectual Allies of the Tea Party

Now, the latest conspiracy theory to gain traction is the notion that America was behind the Taliban hit on Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani student who criticized the extremist group for denying girls education.

The purported purpose of the ruse: to make the Taliban look really, really bad, and thus generate public sympathy for CIA drone strikes — and whip up support for a Pakistani Army invasion of North Waziristan to rout out Haqqani network militants based there.

via Public support of Malala Yousafzai fuels a new set of conspiracy theories – Asia – World – The Independent.

I know this will no doubt make people mad at me – bite me – but the capacity of the human mind to create conspiracies will never cease to astound me.

Oh, and yes, there are more connections between the Taliban and the Tea Party than just the ability to fabricate conspiracy theories wholesale…
