Iraq Study Group Mulled Year-Old Spam

Well, maybe the president is right to ignore the "findings" of the ISG if this is the way they came to their conclusions.....

Over at the National Review's blog, The Corner, Cliff May apologizes for posting a year-old anonyous forwarded email as news. May, let's note, was an adviser to the James Baker-led Iraq Study Group.

In his defense, May says it was shared with him by another adviser to the ISG, a U.S. ambassador. All the ISG experts, May explains, "[are] on a list-serve where we circulate what we view as significant articles and argue over them." May says the ambassador had forwarded the year-old anonymous e-mail to the list.

That's right. An expert advising the ISG shared a year-old anonymous chain e-mail with the group. And the group apparently argued over it.

Finally, someone explains how to win in Iraq......NOT

North Carolina's 8th District congressman has a winning plan for Iraq: convert all the Muslims to Christianity. In the past, only a few brave public intellectuals such as Ann Coulter have offered this only obvious solution to our 3-1/2 year bloodbath occupation of Iraq, so it is a proud moment for America that [GOP] Rep. Robin Hayes is the first politician to deal seriously with our disastrous war.

The only way to make Iraq stable enough for the U.S. to withdraw is by "spreading the message of Jesus Christ, the message of peace on earth, good will towards men. Everything depends on everyone learning about the birth of the Savior."

Yes, indeed....I sure remember from history class how well those Crusades worked out a few centuries ago when the Europeans tried to bring Jesus to the heathen folk of the region!!
