With the Bush Administration painting a rosey picture of Iraq, lets take a look at what other people are saying about it. This one in particular interests me (and is partly in response to Eric’s comment on the political cartoons).

From Baghdad
A Wall Street Journal Reporter’s E-Mail to Friends

by Farnaz Fassihi

Being a foreign correspondent in Baghdad these days is like being under virtual house arrest. Forget about the reasons that lured me to this job: a chance to see the world, explore the exotic, meet new people in far away lands, discover their ways and tell stories that could make a difference.

The Republicans are scared. So scared they have started making up stories. These two have come out in the last few days.

Did Kerry have a Cheat Sheet?
This article claims Kerry had a cheat sheet during the Debates based on a blurry picture wehre Kerry removes something from his pocket right before the debate. Gee Drudge Report (hardly a reliable news source), have you ever heard of a pen?

The second story comes from an equally questionable “news” source, Fox News.

The Guardian ran a story on how Fox News apologized for airing quotes from Kerry that never existed. The website carried fabricated quotes attributed to John Kerry, in which he called himself a “metrosexual” who enjoys getting manicures.

How low will they go? Only time will tell.
