Journalism rises from the grave.

The President of the United States spent Veterans Day lying through his teeth, and insulting any veteran who was also a Democrat.

And today, the Washington Post did the unthinkable: went through his speech, and detailed all the bullshit.

President Bush and his national security adviser have answered critics of the Iraq war in recent days with a two-pronged argument: that Congress saw the same intelligence the administration did before the war, and that independent commissions have determined that the administration did not misrepresent the intelligence.

Neither assertion is wholly accurate.

Two years ago, this sort of reporting seemed to be downright forbidden. Read the article.
