Well watch out on the doorstep – Melanie Phillips has had a revelation and written it up in the Spectator.
Summary of the Phillips story – the USA found massive stores of WDM in underground caves but carelessly left these unguarded allowing Saddam supporters to loot the stores and pass them on to Islamist terrorists. Now an informal coalition of the White House and Liberal critics is suppressing the Truth. The White House because of embarrassment over the looting incompetence and the World Liberal Conspiracy because it doesn’t want to admit it was wrong over WMD.
Seriously, she believes this, and loads of desperate neocons seem to be piling onto this as well, lauding the so-called whistleblower a certain Dave Gaubatz. Watch out on the doorstep for deluded Spectator readers … Sadly this is not a joke.
Hat tip as they say to Glenn Greenwald (Salon online magazine, free registration may be needed), and to Steven D in Booman Tribune. Both have lots of links to sad and frightened neocons grasping at this alleged straw.
