February 6, 2014

The following is the redacted version of a report commissioned by the neocon high council concerning the whereabouts of Biff Diddle, the Free Beacon ombudsman/night club owner/mercenary who has been declared "missing, presumed deadly" since the publication of his Jan. 16 column. Pray for him.

—Multiple sightings were reported of Diddle between 25 January and 27 January. An Iraqi goat merchant claims to have seen a man resembling Diddle loading mortar shells onto a truck outside Fallujah.

The goat-herder’s account supports the testimony of a number of Diddle’s colleagues, who recall his "fury of rage" when he learned Fallujah had been recaptured by terrorists earlier this year. Diddle insisted al Qaeda’s victory had been abetted by the "gutless journalism" of Washington Free Beacon reporter Adam Kredo, who received the following text on 4 January:
