A few weeks ago, it was a non-story. “More of the same!” the White House said. “Just another liberal attack!” They dismissed it, but it wouldn’t go away. A congressman got a letter together demanding an explanation. Bloggers started to push the story hard. But the dismissals continued. This guy on Crossfire said “We had an election on this in November, and the President was reelected, so who cares?” On this old CC post, one reader said it was “revisionist history” and claimed that since it was from the British, so “who could trust it anyway?” (eliciting a long, hilarious and strange response) But unfortunately for all of those people, the story has gained legs, because it is not more of the same, it is not British intelligence (it’s the summary of a meeting) and it is not going away. Like the war or not, a lot of us want a damn explanation.
