AQI (or lack thereof)

We're going to follow Brian Beutler's bridge here from the Salon WMD story we linked to earlier to the Washington Monthly's expose on the influence of Al-Queda in Iraq (hint: not as big as the Bush administration would have believe).

Again, I think it's worth mentioning that there will likely be more of these kinds of behind-the-scenes-of-the-marketing-campaign stories that will do a great deal to topple the house of cards the Bush presidency has built. If journalism if the first draft of history, then we're probably entering into the fact-checking phase; and just a many have suspected for some time now, not much is checking out.
