    Welcome to a genuine phony scandal. You may have caught a glimpse of the lurid headlines this morning, which were splashed across thefront pages of many of America'sleading newspapers -- and, indeed, on our own website: "Prosecutors Say Scott Walker at the Center of Criminal Scheme."

    Receive FREE updates by email: The Phony Scandal By Cliff Kincaid August 5, 2003 Like sharks in the water, the media think they smell blood over the Bush administration’s handling of pre-war intelligence. But Fox News commentators such as Fred Barnes have declared, "There is no scandal here." Bill Kristol called it a "phony scandal." They note that while weapons of mass destruction have yet to be found, the administration’s statements have been based on or attributed to U.S. or British intelligence.
