Follow the Lying

The Iraqi debacle claims its first political-punditry casualty. Judy's going to the slammer.

What's that you say? She's not being imprisoned because of her Iraq reporting?

Technically and directly, I suppose that that's true.

But if you follow the lying, you might notice that Judy's departure to jail has its origins in the "yellow cake" mendacity that Ambassador Joe Wilson unearthed and tried to report before our ill-fated war on Iraq, which was followed by the Cheney administration's reprisal against the Ambassador's wife, which has now led to the current Judy saga .

True, Judy's not who should be getting the jail ticket. But it's a start.
