A Poor Choice of Sources

The material in my previous post was strong, so I tried to err on the side of caution by suggesting I had no way of verifying the credibility of the website I cited as a source. Over the weekend The Huffington Post has received numerous corrective comments from observers who apparently know a good deal about the website in question, and the general impression is that I would have shown better judgment not to air the material here. Questions regarding its credibility are too severe and too plentiful.

With apologies for any setback this may have dealt in the short run to the cause of re-examining the Iraq War, I am asking the editors to remove the previous post. It gave credence where none may have been deserved.
