Because I’m too lazy to come up with original work:
- Jon Schwarz uncovers a nefarious plot at the Gray Lady involving so-called ‘reporter’ Michael Gordon (who, along with Judith Miller, helped propagate the myth of Iraqi WMDs leading up to the US-led invasion.) Via Memeorandum.
- Obama makes it official; Lindsay Beyerstein notes that ex-bow tie aficionado Tucker Carlson apparently believes the church that the Illinois Senator attends is an auxiliary of the Black Panther Party:
- Arab Iraqis in Kirkuk face government expulsion as sectarian strife threatens to migrate north; according to ISN Security Watch, an estimated 150,000 Arabs, mostly Shia, have fled the largely-Kurdish region since 2003, with some reporting threats of violence and abduction. Since 2006, nearly 350 have been people killed (almost of a third of which in death-squad style executions) and 1500 injured in Kirkuk.
- Stephen Duncombe thinks ‘reality’ is highly overrated by the progressive left in the US.
