Node Of Evil - Fair And Balanced Reporting

For those who feel the war on terrorism
could use a little "Structural Adjustment".

Hey all, here's something that's vitally important -- the U.N. aid program in Palestine is close to running out of funds. Please take a minute to donate something to help the Palestinian refugees. You can donate here. More information about the program can be found here.

Who We Are: Did you feel left out of the "Axis of Evil"? Do you not have enough WMD's to qualify? Well, fret no more friend, 'cause any rational left- or right-leaning individual who dares disagree with the war on terrorism is a threat to every peace-loving nation! That means us! and that may mean you, too, are qualified to make the Most-of-the-Most-Wanted list. We're here to welcome all who disagree with, or generally dislike, any aspect of the war on terrorism with open arms! Declare yourself an enemy of the state - join the Node Of Evil.

Why join the Node Of Evil? We offer benefits such as a clear conscience and the ability to express your opinion, plus the opportunity to lob a few political hot potatos in the general direction of the White house.

How do you join the Node Of Evil? To join, simply repeat the phrase "I hate the war on terrorism". Yes, it's that simple!

Knight-Ridder names and shames in this listing of a hundred or so articles which addressed intelligence provided by the Iraqi National Congress. The INC's reports are notorious for the role they played in the run-up to war; their "intelligence" reports made it to newspapers around the world and were sent directly to the offices of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld (according to the accompanying article). I noted the inclusion on that list of a May 2002 article in the Atlantic Monthly by Mark Bowden. I have linked previously to this article in the past as it discussed Hussein's mindset. Unfortunately, I don't know which parts of that article came from the INC and may be heresay. It looks like we, too, were unable to stay free of the INC's faulty intelligence (and this a day after highlighting how important it is to know your sources!), and apologize to our readers for any misinformation they may have gleaned from that article. We'll do our best in the future to avoid such pitfalls.
