The New York Times' Selective Amnesia
Tom Maguire points out
that the New York Times, like everybody else on the Left, seems to have forgotten some key facts.Wow. The editors seem to have forgotten what Joe Wilson actually wrote, and what he actually reported. I have more detail in this post, but the gist is, Wilson did not report that Iraq had not *tried* to buy uranium from Niger; in fact, he reported on a 1999 Iraqi approach which appeared to be exactly that. He did report that he did not believe such a sale was consummated, which is a different matter. One might expect the Times editors to be aware of this distinction.
They also appear to have forgotten that he lied to Nick Kristof
, as the Senate Intelligence Committee reported.
Terrific blogging by Tom. He's been the go-to-guy on the Plame case.
