Saddam's Anthrax

Gleen Greenwald on a huge and forgotten story:

All of those factual claims -- each and every one of them, separately -- were completely false, demonstrably and unquestionably so. There is now no question about that. Yet neither ABC nor Ross have ever retracted, corrected, clarified, or explained these fraudulent reports -- reports which, as documented below, had an extremely serious impact on the views formed by Americans in those early, critical days about the relationship between the 9/11 attacks, the anthrax attacks and Iraq.

Memo to aspiring journalists: Study what the American media did during the run-up to the war in Iraq. And go to Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital. Put the two together in your mind, and keep them there forever.
