Let me say publicly that DonBoy’s answer exudes a combination of intuitive genius and confidence that make me think DonBoy is going to do big things in his life. -- Steven D. Levitt (Freakonomics blog)

According to Balloon Juice, the idea that clandestine US forces bombed the UN in Baghdad in order to assassinate Sergio Vieria de Mello is ludicrous conspiracy thinking. OK, I think so too.
On the other hand, according to Roger Simon, quoted approvingly by Instapundit, it's perfect reasonable specualtion that the UN itself blew up its own compound, to destroy the evidence of the UN's purported massive corruption -- Simon names Kofi Annan specifically, which makes it even nicer. So I guess that's not wacky conspiracy nuttery.
