Instapundit readers welcome! If you haven’t been here in a while look around. New format, additional authors, feeds to other great sites. Tons of stuff. Poke around and drop us a line.
The sky is blue, time is still moving forward one second at a time . . . and Glenn Greenwald is still being dishonest.
Regarding Dave Gaubatz, who claims that Saddam really did have WMD, Greenwald says:
This is the individual to whom Glenn Reynolds, Powerline, Michelle Malkinâ€™s blog and scores of others are pointing as the Iraqi Weapons Expert who knows the Real Truth behind Saddamâ€™s Missing WMDs.
Letâ€™s look at the evidence Greenwald cites to prove the assertion that these individuals are swooning over Gaubatzâ€™s claim.
First, here is Glenn Reynolds:
â€œI FOUND SADDAMâ€™S WMD BUNKERS:â€ Er, wouldnâ€™t this be news if it were true? Maybe not, these days. . . .â€
Here is â€œMichelle Malkinâ€™s blogâ€ (actually Allah at Hot Air):
Melanie Phillipsâ€™s new piece in the Spectator is making the rounds so I might as well toss up a link. This story isnâ€™t new â€” FrontPage was writing about Gaubatz last April and the Times featured him in a story about diehard WMD believers in June. He seems credible, but I must say, stories about the continuing hunt for WMDs at this point seem to me like a right-wing version of Trutherism. Besides, even if Gaubatz is right about the weapons having been moved to Syria, weâ€™ll simply never know unless Assad ups and admits that theyâ€™re there. And if he was going to do that, odds are heâ€™d already have offered to do it in exchange for whatever concessions he might want from the Bush administration.
Still an interesting read, though.
Maybe somebody needs to explain to Greenwald what â€œTrutherismâ€ means. Hint: it ainâ€™t a compliment.
Read the whole thing and then visit “our incomparable archives” for more sock puppet fun.
