Riehl points out the amazing similarity between the recent Pulitzer article by Priest and one written in 2002, also published in the WaPo.

Interesting questions are why the re-publication and why does this re-hash now get a Pulitzer?

I like the fact that this duplicitous articale gets pointede out, but do we really need to question the intent of the WaPo and Preist? seems rather obvious.

Good catch. In other words, the same story was published as news in 2002 and as propaganda in 2005. The Pulitzer Prize Committee ignored it when it was news, but gave it the prize when it was propaganda.

Once again, we see that the powers behind the scene INSTRUCT the Pulitzer Prize Committee who should get the award. And in that back scratching coterie of journalists, editors, politicians, and journalism professors, with the same people often moving from one area to another, in and out of academia or public service, the message always gets through.

The story appears to have been a lie. However, the publishing of that story brought hell to pay to some of our allies abroad.

Good to know the left still lives in the era of Clinton when it was ok to lie. /sarc
