Do you expect any of the wingnuts and warbloggers who denied that the CIA was running secret prisons in Eastern Europe to express any embarrassment now that the President has acknowledged the truth?
Of course, that’s just good clean fun. Making all our supporters in Europe look stupid isn’t. But of course all other considerations must give way to national-security imperative of preventing the GOP from getting clobbered in November.
Update Link added in response to comments. Yes, the primary winger response was that Dana Priest and her sources were traitors who ought to be put in prison for revealing state secrets. But the secondary line, especially after the EU Parliament investigation failed to find the smoking gun, was that the prisons didn’t exist and the story was part of a mole-hunting operation aimed at disloyal (to Bush, that is) elements within the CIA. Little Green Footballs, Captain’s Quarters, RedState, and Right Wing Nut House all made the same claim, and Glenn Reynolds helped spread the wildly implausible story without committing himself to it.
