Bush Hacker Gets Four Years, Bush Gets Good Times And A Vanity Friggin' Library

The Romanian cabdriver cum hacker who broke into e-mail accounts of world leaders to reveal a host of tawdry secrets, including George Bush's primitive paintings, has been sentenced in a Romanian court to four years in prison. Bush has said he was "annoyed" by the actions of Marcel Lazar Lehel, aka Guccifer. Hey George: four years for a tech prank, freedom, wealth and leisurely dabbling for the murder of thousands? Annoyed doesn't begin to capture it for the rest of us.

Update: A U.S. federal grand jury just indicted him as well. No word on when Bush's indictment will come through.

Update: With the fall of Mosul and the ensuing chaos, an exploration of Bush's disastrous imperial adventures, and all that came before.
