Wagging the Dog

Billmon posted his observation that U.S. and British authorities ‘coincidentally’ issued statements that the Iraq intelligence presented to both govt.’s justified an attack.

His comments section contains a post quoting a few of the right’s favorite Dem targets as if their opinions now matter.

It’s alarming, and I imagine embarrassing for them, that so many apologists are now willing to put aside their former theories that Clinton et. al were in fact ‘wagging the dog’ because they hope it adds weight to their flimsy arguments that Bush & Co. didn’t lie.

Wouldn’t it make much more sense to conclude that both men did?
