The Standard Piece Succeeded
Do you want to know what's really notable about today's New York Times article about the Weekly Standard report about the Iraqal Qaeda link? No, not that the Times used every method to discredit everybody along the chain that brought this information to the public. Rather, the part I've italicized here:
The public opinion jury had been back for quite a while. Now it's left the room again.
(Of course, that poor jury is getting a lot of exercise. As I've pointed out, in 1998, the Times reported the verdict in a headline: "US Government - Bin Laden and Iraq Agreed to Cooperate on Weapons Development.")
