Novak and Armitage Trade Accusations Over Leak

Columnist Robert Novak and former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage can’t agree on what Armitage’s intentions were when he told Novak about Valerie Plame’s employment by the CIA. Novak claims it was a deliberate leak; Armitage says it was much more casual.

    Fool Me Once, Bush

    Fool Us Once, Mr. President…

    In light of news (see above) about a U.S. House report that is, according to the United Nations, exaggerating claims about Iran’s nuclear capabilities, we’ve got a ready-made response. And interestingly enough, President Bush already delivered it. Watch it.

    United Nations: U.S. Making Inflated Iranian Nuke Claims

    A United Nations committee is bitterly complaining that parts of a U.S. House report on Iran’s nuclear capabilities are “outrageous and dishonest.”

    The World Just Got a Little Boring

    Ann Richards, the sharp-tongued trailblazer from Texas, died on Wednesday at the age of 73.  Though she served only one term as governor, Richards left her mark on Texas and the nation.  Known for a keen wit, Richards also accomplished an unprecedented promotion of minorities and women to positions of influence.
