Earlier today, I posted some reactions to Powell’s visit to the UN, including my own. Since then, I’ve come across some interesting links.
Powell’s Evidence Looking Shaky describes several serious shortcomings: the aluminum tubes, "the fine paper that the United Kingdom distributed" (plagiarized), and a supposed al-Qaida camp in Northern Iraq.
The LA Times has Iraq Opens Suspicious Sites to Eyes of Media.
In a lighter note, Neal Pollack makes fun of live coverage of the Powell address.
I fear that Bush has painted himself into a corner. He can’t afford to back down now without losing face. That means we’ll go to war, unless Saddam steps down, which is almost as unlikely as Bush backing down. Feh!
