Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.posted by The Vidiot @ 3:40 PM Permalink I have nothing to say about whether or not the Iraq blog bush mentioned is a phlog or not, even though there seems to be some sort of an internet brouhaha over its legitimacy and possible connection to the CIA.
No. What got me about the story is this little gem:
Excerpt: The blog, written by Baghdad-based brothers Mohammed and Omar, who are dentists, and doctor Ali, first surfaced in November 2003, a few months after the war in Iraq ended.Excuse me? The Iraq war ended in 2003? Really?
Hard to tell what with all the bombings and killings and what not.
I mean, if there is no more war, if the Iraq war is really over, then what war are these guys trying to put an end to?
Excerpt: The Appeal for Redress is a confidential online petition to Congress asking for an end to the Iraq war. Because the Uniform Code of Military Justice expressly permits members of the military to petition their representatives, the Appeal is 100 percent legal, and since its unveiling in late 2006 the Appeal has gathered over 1,700 signatures.Ugh.
Well, that's the BBC. Reporting the news that they're told to report. Once again.
Excerpt: An alternate local BBC report-- which included a live time-stamp-- now positively establishes that BBC reported the collapse of WTC Building 7 at least 25-minutes prior to the actual collapse of the building.
