The Smoking Gun?

I think yesterday's goofy DC evacuation was too convenient. Perhaps the Admin was worried over this London Times cover story featuring a memo that conclusively demonstrates the fraudulence of Bush's case for war; perhaps they wanted to distract attention from the heavy, costly fighting going on in Al-Anbar (very quietly on CNN this afternoon during Wolf Blitzer's show a Baghdad correspondent said an entire squad of Marines was "taken out," meaning killed or wounded to the degree the 1st platoon was no longer combat-ready). Who knows? Perhaps I'm paranoid. But Tom Ridge gave the game away recently...Our major media are so easy to distract, especially when many of their representatives are hustled brusquely out of Senate office buildings and the Capitol and told to run.
