Nice job sidestepping the name of your "credible" source. He actually told 2 different stories and I believe the lawsuit he and Valery Plame tried to gin up went up in smoke. The interesting sidebar is that while Tim Russert didn't do jail time for his flagging memory on the issue, Libby did. Some justice.

Kinda like what I did when I pointed out that your source is the mouth piece of a neo-con think tank.
Ashame you don't apply the same rigorous attitude toward your own sources of info.

Yes, they'll come in really handy when it's time to clean up AFTER the suicide bomb has gone off (assuming they aren't killed in the blast).

Yes, that sounds exactly like what I said.
My but that sounds extremely naive. Makes one wonder what you'd be prepared to do beyond trying to "talk reason" to them. Like I said....death of a thousand cuts.
