According to the transcript of today’s White House Briefing, a “reporter” named John had this Gannon-like intro to his question:

Q You talked about sanctions against Iran if they don’t comply with dismantling their nuclear energy program. Sanctions, in the past, have proven to be a joke — that they didn’t work against Iraq…

Of course, according to the administration’s handpicked weapons inspector, David Kay, that’s untrue:

“Iraq’s large-scale capability to develop, produce, and fill new chemical weapon munitions was reduced – if not entirely destroyed – during Operations Desert Storm and Desert Fox, 13 years of UN sanctions and UN inspections.”

Atrios noted a similar incident last Wednesday.
