In a way you gotta' admire the tenacity...

Josh Marshall really lays into a column by Bill Safire over at the Washington Post. It seems that Safire still believes that we will eventually find WMDs in Iraq and other such nonsense. This graf jumped out a me:

Now Safire has a new theory. "In a sovereign and free Iraq, when germ-warfare scientists are fearful of being tried as prewar criminals, their impetus will be to sing — and point to caches of anthrax and other mass killers."
To use a much-overused line, you can't make this stuff up. It transcends self-parody.

Someone should let Safire know that torture will loosen men’s tongues and overcome their fear of being prosecuted…
