Alarming News

January 28, 2004

Two stories I wish were getting more attention in the US

1) Hutton castigates BBC over ‘unfounded’ Iraq report
Now apologise, says Blair
2) Anti-war nations ‘took bribes’ before war began
UPDATE: Yes, I realize that the blogosphere is all over it.
FURTHER UPDATE: Ok, the first story is now all over the news. I’m just, clearly, impatient.
EVEN FURTHER UPDATE: A great read about both of these news stories. Via Instapundit.

I can’t wait to hear BBC tomorrow morning. I listen to these people everyday and they are so smug in the delivery of their droning “where are the weapons” anti-security propaganda. If you listen for one morning, hear how they spin this: WNYC AM 5-6am. Set the alarm.
They just keep going, as if giving an honest critical assessment of how the other side thinks was a notion beyond any potential reality. When the host (Dan) or reporter provides a counterpoint in conversation, he (Vicki Barker, an american of supreme liberal vengeance, former host, was worse) just makes it up out of the most useful misperception available. It is hilarious.

Those corrupt, greedy bastards!! They should be punished hardcore, and if it went as deep to effect national policy and the highest level of goverment was in on it, they better Grovel before the US and beg for forgiveness. If Chirac was in on it that pompous French snob should get the guilatine.

I posted about the same thing. I admire Blair for his.. balls. In fact, I love that UK politics is engaging – not just for the public, but literally between politicians all the way up to the top.

I think Blair is seeking an apology from more people than the BBC. The Conservatives for example, who opportunistcally ditched all principles and tried to make hay on this one.
“where are the waepons” anti security propoganda ??????
Well, where are those weapons then?
This whole mess that led to Hutton was Blairs own making. WMDs whould never have been used as justification for the war. Many other easons existed. I said at the time that it was flawed.

‘This whole mess that led to Hutton was Blairs own making.’
Didn’t the judge rule the exact opposite, that the whole mess that led to Hutton was the fault of the BBC?
This blogger has more on this:
So facts be damned!
Whether the clinically examined facts of the Hutton inquiry.
Or the fact that Blair didn’t knowingly mislead the Commons on WMD.
Or ’sex up’ any dossiers.
He, you know, did all that anyway. Hutton’s an arse. He’s a rank apologist for the government. It’s a whitewash.
So back to Blair and Bush hating.

Hey, that’s my apologize! and you spelled it wrong.

You have just repeated the Independents viewpoint there (their front sheet is a blank page). I never said that. Broadly I am glad that the media have been left with egg on their faces, and a sane conclusion was reached. The frenzy during this whole thing had to be seen to be believed (that’s all it essentialy was – a media frenzy)
Doesn’t mean that Blairs WMD argument was not dumb, whether he genuinelly believed it or not.
