As The Worm Turns

Knowing that I can never resist flogging a dead horse, the ever-observant Don Brouhaha sent me a link to this excellent post on our friends at UNMOVIC. You remember - those wacky folks who brought you entertaining fare like, "Dude... where are my WMD's???" and the hilarious UNMOVIC 12th Quarterly Report, in which Mr. Hans Blix reached conclusions of astonishing clarity and decisiveness like the following:

What are we to make of these activities? One can hardly avoid the impression that, after a period of somewhat reluctant cooperation, there has been an acceleration of initiatives from the Iraqi side since the end of January.
This is welcome, but the value of these measures must be soberly judged by how many question marks they actually succeed in straightening out. This is not yet clear.

So many things were unclear to the hapless Mr. Blix. But apparently whatever UNMOVIC has been smoking for the past few years wore off, because they appear to have made a momentous discovery: Saddam like, totally did have WMDs....

Wow... that's harsh.

Now I know you're all asking yourselves, "Why is all this information assembled on a humble blog called AlphaPatriot, instead of a full investigative report on the cover of the NY Times?" Well, it just so happens that I can explain that.

Our friends at the Times do not wish you to become alarmed. They are feeding you all the information they feel you can handle. They have your best interests at heart - really.

Here is a piece by Ron Paul that details the lies of Bush:

what concerns me is that this address was given two years ago and since then the claims have been verified, wouldn't you say?

I do so trust the NY Times. I mean, they've never lied to us, or make up stories out of whole cloth, or plagerized.

Yeah, they've got their own intelligence failure going on over there.

This seems that appropriate place to post this correction from today's New York Times:

A picture on July 4 with an article about Gerhard Richter's book "War Cut," depicting his abstract painting "No. 648-2," was reproduced upside down and in reverse. The corner with the concentration of orange paint should have been at the upper right, not the lower right.

Upside down and in reverse.
Why am I not surprised?
