Someone had it 'all wrong', alright

Click here for Amazon!Ahhh, you've got to love the mainstream media's continual attempts to spin the truth towards the Left. A rude awakening is in store for the Gray Lady and the Post as the abandonment of the old guard continues apace... and scores of independent, new media outlets attract raucous hordes of disenfranchised truth-seekers.

A front-page Washington Post story on the Senate testimony of chief Weapons Inspector Charles Duelfer this week has a headline saying, "U.S. 'Almost All Wrong' on Weapons." And the story, by Post reporters Dana Priest and Walter Pincus, quoted Duelfer as telling a Senate panel, "We were almost all wrong' on Iraq."

But Duelfer never said that.

The Post has now published a correction, with the explanation — if it can be called that — that former weapons inspector David Kay did use those words in Senate testimony last January.

The paper offered no explanation of how Kay's eight month-old quote ended up in Charles Duelfer's mouth.
