Who's Who of Possible Assassinations has a provocative little web feature entitled "The World's Marked Men." Daniel Byman goes through the world's most likely to be assassinated leading men and then ponders the why, the who, the how, the then what, and finally, the worst case scenario. You won't be surprised by who's on it -- Karzai, Putin, Chavez, Musharraf, Abdullah, Bin Laden, and Sistani -- but you may be surprised by who isn't on it: namely, our own President Bush.

I don't think I have to tell you that President Bush isn't the most popular of world leaders, so what gives? Is it decorum? He's certaintly a target and to be honest I'd like to know what Byman thinks would happen if such a ghastly objective was achieved.

Am I bad for thinking this?
