CBS news does good on the Iraqi magic wands

On Monday night, CBS Evening News covered the arrest of the snake-oil salesman who was selling what he claimed are bomb-sniffing dowsing rods, but are in reality (gasp!) totally useless:

Lt. Col. Hal Bidlack (retired), interviewed in the show, is an old friend and friend of the JREF; if you've attended a TAM then you've seen him MC the event. He got in a couple of excellent sound bites!

And I guess I should be fair. The magic wands aren't totally useless. They're perfect for getting people blown up and killed. I'm sure the terrorists love them.
