With Ron Suskind's latest book, which drops the bombshell that the White House gave instructions to the CIA to forge a document to make it look like Iraq and al Qaeda were connected, the administration has done its usual trash-and-dash defense. They try to undermine the credibility of Pulitzer Prize winner Suskind just like they've tried to do in the past with Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh. I suppose we need to wait for the stellar, prize-winning folks over at Fox News to report these scandals for it to be believable....

As for hoping to get anyone to testify under oath about this plot, just one word -- HAH! That only occurs if you've had consensual oral sex from an intern, not if you've attempted to fabricate intelligence to make a better case to take the country to war. Don't be silly.

(Needless to say, the usual refrain applies here: Imagine if Ron Suskind's book came out with this revelation and Bill Clinton was in office.... The wingnuts would be screaming for him not just to resign but that he should be jailed for treason -- regardless if he had just a few months left in office. It would be a 24/7 crusade.)
