The Square Circuit

Academia, parenthood, living in a bankrupt city, and what I read in the process.

Now even the Republicans see it! From Sen. John Warner's (R-VA: aka Mr. Elizabeth Taylor) press conference today:

"Now, they're confronted with a serious problem over there in Iraq -- I've now finished my sixth visit just two months ago -- and that is disinformation. An enormous amount of information is being fed the Iraqi press, both written and television, that is just plain factually wrong... The disinformation is going out in that country is really affecting the effectiveness of what we're achieving and what our troops are fighting and dying for and being wounded. And as a consequence, we have no recourse but to try and get the truth and the facts out."

Warner, on Wednesday, pointed to what could most charitably be called "disinformation" and what could more accurately be called "lies" when he confirmed TIME reporter Michael Ware's refutation of Bush's assertion that Iraqi troops "led" the way in the battle of Tal Afar.
