The Hayes Stands Alone

I haven’t heard much about Doug Feith’s new book, War And Decision, but Spencer Ackerman has a two post series which brings to light the amusing fact that Feith’s book fails to back up Steven Hayes’ various contentions about Iraq/al-Qaeda linkages even though as best anyone can tell Feith was the source for all of Hayes’ “reporting” on the subject. This kind of thing, one assumes, is how Feith managed to acquire an unusually bad reputation amidst an administration packed to the ceiling with incompetents and war criminals.
