Republicans rebooting an old classic

It’s no “it’s been pretty well confirmed that [Mohamed Atta, the leader of the 19 9/11 hijackers] did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service in Czechoslovakia last April, several months before the attack,” which was really a masterful display of lying in the service of… Continue reading Republicans rebooting an old classic
