Apparently there's Really No Such Thing as "Self-Evident"
By Michael Fumento
In response to your Fallujah article, here is an excerpt from Kevin Drum's blog in the Atlantic Monthly.
[313 words omitted regarding reporting by Knight Ridder's Tom Lasseter.]
Cat In The Hat
Lasseter has told us nothing about Iraq and everything about Knight-Ridder, that it deserves its reputation as the American Al Jazeera. If "Anbar is about as bad now as it was before last November's offensive" then when I walked down its streets I would have been kidnapped, had my head sawed off with a dull knife, and been available as a video download for ghouls. Insofar as I'm typing this to you, you may presume that did not happen and that therefore Lasseter was not telling the truth. For my part, I have little trouble believing my own eyes and experiences rather than the agit-prop of a pathetic "news" agency that went absolutely bonkers after one of its own columnists, Mark Yost, dared claim that K-R was deliberately obscuring progress in Iraq.
