Co-Reporter On WaPo "Bush Lied" Piece: It Wasn't Me

Jeff Smith, who shared the byline for that catastrophically wrong WaPo "Carl Levin's IG report proves Bush Lied" report, writes a response to a reader:

I agree with you that this was an egregious error. I also had nothing to do with it. All I did was obtain a copy of the unclassified summary of the IG report and write a precisely correct account, which I turned over to the other reporters. Iím not happy my name was put on that story by the editors, and I was astonished by the mistake. I blew the whistle on it internally. So donít attribute the mistake to me.

Cheers,

Jeff Smith<

So who was the bad guy?


Well, as Powerline reports, there were only two names on that byline -- Jeff Smith and Walter Pincus.

Oh, and check out Jack Cafferty wonder why it was "okay" for the US to arm Afghan rebels against the Soviets and not "okay," according to the US, for Iran to arm Shiite rebels killing our troops.

Bryan from Hot Air attacks Jack Cafferty on grounds of making a moral equivalence.

The hell with moral equivalence. How about they're different because Jack Cafferty, as an American, should give a shit what happens to his fellow Americans?

One of the biggest demonstrations of hubris by liberals is that of assuming a God's eye view of the world. They purport to view everyting as an angel might. An angel knows no country -- ergo a liberal shouldn't, either, in choosing between combatants in war. What should it matter that American boys are being killed by these weapons? An angel doesn't have a nationality, and neither does Cafferty.

Except, of course, liberals do have a nationality, because they're not angles dancing among the stars. But they like to pretend they don't, or that their loyalties shouldn't be encumbered by such accidents of happenstance.
