Take a long hard look at the man in the picture above, he is, Maj. Gen. Jehad al-Jabiri, head of the Iraqi Ministry of the Interior’s General Directorate for Combating Explosives. Without any shadow of a doubt he is the most stupid man on the planet earth.To back up my statement about his stupidity just take a look at a few of the things he said to, Rod Nordland a reporter from the New York Times:
“I don’t care about Sandia or the Department of Justice or any of them,”
This was in response to being asked had he read the Sandia Lab report regarding dowsing rods being used for explosive detection.
“I know more about this issue than the Americans do. In fact, I know more about bombs than anyone in the world.”
This was in response to being asked if he had read what the American Military had said regarding the useless ADE651.
“Can you imagine dogs at all 400 checkpoints in Baghdad, The city would be a zoo.”
This was in response to being asked whether trained dogs would not have been a better buy.
During an interview on Tuesday, General Jabiri challenged a Times reporter to test the ADE 651, placing a grenade and a machine pistol in plain view in his office. Despite two attempts, (not surpisingly) the wand did not detect the weapons when used by the reporter but did so each time it was used by a policeman.
“You need more training,” the general said.
( The good old default excuse, it would appear that the General has been well trained, in what to say when as usual the device fails)
This buffoon is charge of the Iraqi Department for combating explosives. He swears by the use of the ADE651 and actually believe it works, but he doesn't know how it works as he stated:
" Whether it’s magic or scientific, what I care about is it detects bombs,"
Says an awful lot about the amount of testing they allegedly did on the scam device, ADE651 if the person in charge has no idea how it is supposed to work. There are only two reasons why the General would speak so favourably of the ADE651 and they are:
1) He is stupid.
2) He is corrupt and accepted a very nice payment for the purchase of the scam devices.
I will leave it to, Colonel Bidlack to sum up, “When they say they are selling you something that will save your son or daughter on a patrol, they’ve crossed an insupportable line into moral depravity.”
