There, I just saved Karl Rove a bundle. That line of code can be his whole program at this point.
Here is the trickle up of factoids gleaned from real authentic pre-invasion Iraqi secret documents as it moves up the food chain of right wing blogs. The last time ANYONE was that uncritical of a document was when Dan Rather took Bush's national guard records at face value and ran with it. Considering that our government possessed these documents for nearly three years, many of us find it curious that no one saw a need to disclose these "smoking guns" until bush approval ratings dip into mid thirties. Even the pros get burned. Now that its the blogger's turn to tell their hope from the straight dope, we'll see who gets it right. Glenn Reynolds was wondering why MSM hasn't made more of this pile of papers.
Seems clear to me why not. The for-profit press, for all the compromises it has made with this administration, still employs some able reporters and fact finders. If by now they haven't dug up this information in the normal course of their snooping its likely because this was never regarded as substantial. The public esteem for dear leader and his gang and their adgendas dwindle. He has already done the neocon causes much of the serious damage and discrediting they deserve. I would imagine he flips back and forth between staying the curse and writhing about looking for a way to cut losses and get out of Iraq while he can still hang "mission accomplished" on this abortion. It must be appealing to the bush league to find a few left over crumbs from that cardboard feast of "information" that was so useful in getting us into the war. What a clear sign of desperation that after two years of discediting for each claimed cause for war, they are still trying to sell Saddam's Scary War Machine to us. Or maybe they need to convince themselves that somehow the "facts" that justify war are true because they can't voice an unconsious fear of something the anti-war souls have known all along:
What true victory could come of a war based on lies? What if you couldn't repeat a lie often enough to make it true?
