Downing Street Stuff

RJ Eskow writes an open letter to the members of the Big Brass Alliance, wanting to know if perhaps it’s time for some old-fashioned shoe leather.

Rob at Captain Oblivious suggests checking out this editorial. I agree.

The King of Zembla points us in the direction of Empire Burlesque, and notes:
Chris Floyd of Empire Burlesque has reposted an article he wrote in September 2004 "detailing the incontrovertible evidence of deliberate deception by the "Coalition" leaders in the invasion of Iraq. The material, all in the public domain, was pre-Downing Street Memo -- but did draw upon equally damning official UK material leaked and reported well before the U.S. election of 2004." BBA members might find it entertaining, especially in light of the wingnut campaign to paint the DSM and related memos as fraudulent.’s David Swanson asks the question, Remember When Bush's Lies Weren't "Old News"?, and answers “Neither do I.” You have to check it out. Not only is it a great piece, but the floating Milbank heads nearly ended me!

And Crooks and Liars has the video of the DSM being discussed on Hardball last night. I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, but I’ve heard mixed reviews.

If you’ve seen something else interesting, leave it in comments. I’m busy again today, so I haven’t much time to look around.
