Parachuting In - Cop(ter)ing Out

From a correspondent of Juan Cole's:
In the meantime, the embassy people act as if nothing in Baghdad is wrong (except that they cannot walk in the Green Zone without body armor and they have to take precautions against kidnapping).

Recently, a group from State and the military parachuted in from Washington [with fatuous advice] . . . It is a fantasy world."
If this doesn't sound like Saigon in 1975, what does?
