There has been an explosion of media coverage. CSPAN covered John Conyers’ hearing where Ray McGovern and John Bonifaz both made the case for Impeachment. Video highlights at Crooks and Liars.
The Impeachment Option is covered well by That Colored Fella, who I’ll also credit with a great photo of Southern Baptist Humor.
The really big story is from The Independent which reveals that the US has used napalm-type firebombs during the Iraq War and lied about it to the British government. Global Security.org covered the use of napalm like weapons in August of 2003.
The actual bombs used are known as MK-77s, and they are napalm canister munitions. They evolved from the napalm bombs which we associate with the Korean and Vietnam wars. The Heretik does a terrific job with the napalm story and Freiheit und Wissen chimes in on napalm with a depleted uranium kicker and brings up the phrase “crimes against humanity.”
Pam’s Houseblend has a good round-up post.
Visit Kevin Drum for Downing Street Delusions from the wingnuts. In a nutshell, they are calling DSM Rathergate II.
I think the wingnuts were too slow out of the gate with this propaganda effort. As Editor & Publisher pointed out last week:
The Sunday Times observed: “The complaints of media self-censorship have been backed up by the ombudsmen of The Washington Post, The New York Times and National Public Radio, who have questioned the lack of attention the minutes have received from their organizations.”
This story is just going to pick up steam. Of course it would help if Senate Democrats weren’t so intent on being robust liberal warmongers.
