In Defense of Newsweek: Karzai Talks

Well, knock me over and dip me in molasses. You mean the Newsweek "Periscope" article might not have been the chief cause for Afghanistan rioting that killed 17 people?

Well, at least that's what Harmid Karzai says: "It was directed at the peace process that we have of inviting back the thousands of the Taliban to come back to their country. It was actually against the elections in Afghanistan. So we know what was going on there."

Huh. Sure is a complicated, big ol' world, ain't it, Scottie?

It doesn't matter if Karzai and Richard Myers seem to know more about what is going on in that part of the world and have told us as such. Bush and ScottieMac told the 24-hour chattering class that it was all Newsweek's fault, and now that is burned into everyone's brains. It was, as with all of Rove's handiwork, a brilliant exercise in douchebaggery.
