Immiment Threat?

Tom Brazaitis (who used to be a senior editor for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, but is now identified as a "Washington columnist," writes a column responding to a reader who demanded that he prove that Bush ever said Saddam was an "imminent threat." Brazaitis admits that he was wrong in saying that! Yet, he goes on to say that Bush implied it! Amazing stuff and this is another example of a liberal going overboard (and even lying) and the generic problem with the elite media. He concludes: "Let’s be honest. The president took us to war because he wanted to and because he could." Instapundit has a few choice words on the matter.

Brazaitis functioned as "Washington Bureau chief" or some such title in recent years for the PD and may be retired or semi-retired now, or perhaps was simply dismissed, I’m not sure. He has always been reliably on the far-left in his editorial opinion, so this stance is no surprise to PD readers.
And when "busted", he simply fell back on the "well, if he didn’t say it, he implied it" line.
Consider this a "win" in Andrew Sullivan’s crusade for accuracy and honesty with regard to what Bush said or didn’t say to justify the Iraq liberation.

Brazaitis’closing statement "Let’s be honest" is priceless.

There is also no mention of the $500 to charity which was the bet to begin with. He can always send it to the Ashbrook Center
