Seems I was a bit hasty blaming the Khan leak on the administration. Smallconsolation hat I was right about the Washington Monthly, Atrios. and Josh Marshall. in light of Mickey’s post, special credit should go to Juan Cole, who is now 0-lifetime and whose coverage of the issue has been especially pointed and anti-administration. If only we could blame this on the Jews.

Um, Seems I was a bit hasty blaming the Khan leak on the administration.….
*** Update ***
As of right now, comments are 100% against me blaming the administration. Go figure.
Sorry, but I can’t resist gloating.
The lesson here is two-fold:
1) In its rush to be first with a story, the press doesn’t always take the time to get their facts in order.
2) All of us amateur pundits would be wise not to seize on breaking news stories to prove that Bush is a moron, or that Kerry is a weasel.
Mea culpa on this one, John: looks like the Bush League didn’t blow Khan’s cover. This is one time where, frankly, I’m glad to have been proven wrong.
