The Washington Post Deserts Lefty
Liberal bastion of leftist thought, the Washington Post on Sunday ran the following editorial, excerpted here:
- PRESIDENT BUSH was right to approve the declassification of parts of a National Intelligence Estimate about Iraq three years ago in order to make clear why he had believed that Saddam Hussein was seeking nuclear weapons. Presidents are authorized to declassify sensitive material, and the public benefits when they do. But the administration handled the release clumsily, exposing Mr. Bush to the hyperbolic charges of misconduct and hypocrisy that Democrats are leveling.
- The material that Mr. Bush ordered declassified established, as have several subsequent investigations, that Mr. Wilson was the one guilty of twisting the truth. In fact, his report supported the conclusion that Iraq had sought uranium.
Gee Lefty, even YOUR newspapers are beginning to abandon the fever swamps of YOUR party. Karl Rove must have made them do it, right? (hat tip to AceofSpades)
