Urban Legends

Yesterday Peter Wehner took on the biggest of the Urban legends that surround Iraq. You know, how Bush misled the country by pressuring intel analysts to lie about the WMD's that didn't exist that meant Sadaam wasn't a threat to the US, blah blah blah blah...

It's well worth the read and a helpful resource as it consolidates these arguments of the left and their rebuttals in one easy-to-read piece. I fear though that it is essentially useless.

These arguments have calcified and become conventional wisdom, to the point that they can be and are routinely recited as though they were obvious, irrefutable truths. Pieces like this needed to be written and blogged and talked about 2 1/2 years ago.

This comment at Neo-Neocon offers a fine take-down of these arguments in it's own right.
