Unpatriotic Liars


Here is poor David Frum pretending to have second thoughts about the Iraq War for which he shilled.  Obviously, the only people who are capable of having  second thoughts had to have first thoughts, and there is no sign that Frum has ever done anything but pound a keyboard and recycle other people's lies.

The friend who sent me the link queried: "Lemme see.  To whom does he NOT apologize?"

A halfway decent person who had worked for a propaganda regime responsible for so much devastation would have trouble sleeping at night.  Be assured:  Frum gets ten hours of untroubled sleep every night.  For neoconservatives, unconciousness is always just minutes away.
