Truth in advertising

I don't think I will ever endorse a candidate for any elective office, but I will suggest one candidate I favor, on disclosure grounds alone, for the head of Hamas. Sunday's Washington Post carried a story that somewhat counterintuitively suggests that killing the terrorist group's leadership makes it a more formidable force. (If this is true, think of all the money wasted over the years protecting heads of state, generals, and so on.) Among those who might take over the organization is a "military leader" (I assume this means he decides which buses full of old ladies and children will be targeted) with the fortuitous name of Adnan Ghoul.
