Deep Underground with Raul Groom

Comeuppance for the Knave of Darkness?

Funny thing happened to me on the way to the blogspot this morning. I was sitting on the Metro, reading the WaPo, and I came across this hilarious column by Bob Novak titled "The CIA vs. Bush." Regular readers of this space and of the Raul Groom DU column will remember that Novak actually fired the first shot in the war he purports to describe; this piece of information goes unmentioned in the Op/Ed.

So my blog post this morning was going to be one excoriating the Post for printing such obviously dishonest, conflicted hogwash, but when I went to link to the article, I found it does not appear - anywhere - online.

So until I get a Nastygram from the Post (accompanied by an explanation of why the piece is not available online), here's the full text, typed from the Post. Feel free to link to if you want to link to this story.

The CIA vs. Bush
Robert D. Novak

A few hours after President Bush dismissed a pessimistic CIA report on Iraq as "just guessing," the analyst who identified itself as its author spoke at a private dinner last week of secret, unheeded warnings years ago about going to war in Iraq. Tis exchange leads to the unavoidable conclusion that the president of the United States and the Central Intelligence Agency are at war with each other.


False alarm - you can read the article (which has a different title) at the Sun-Times here:

My bad.
