Freudian slip of the day

Ethiopia, which has been protecting the ineffectual and fractured Somali government, recently announced it would withdraw its troops by the end of this month. That will leave the Western-baked government vulnerable to Islamic insurgents and further chaos.
Yes, that was "baked" and not "backed," and quite appropriate too, since the Ethiopian invasion which installed the current Somali "government" (an inconvenient fact conveniently omitted from the article) was almost certainly an action "baked" in Washington. Or at least, half-baked.
