Don Surber has an excellent roundup of the moonbat scandals that seemed so promising over the weekend, but now seem to be imploding:
This scandal got off to a good start.
On Saturday, the New York Times reported: “C.I.A. Was Urged to Keep Interrogation Videotapes.”
But by Sunday, the story began to unravel. Hold the pitchforks and torches, everyone.
On Monday, more bad news. The NYT: “C.I.A. Official in Inquiry Called a ‘Hero’.”
By Silvestre Reyes, the Democratic chairman of (dramatic pause) the House Intelligence Committee.
And finally, today, NYT threw in the towel: “Destruction of C.I.A. Tapes Cleared by Lawyers.”
Come on. There is no scandal. Again.
Follow the links to see how this has played out. I noted the other day that the Democrats are being hypocritical about the issue of waterboarding, but running in tandem with that story has been the destruction of those tapes. In my opinion no matter who knew what when, if those tapes had been requested in legal proceedings after being in a vault for a couple of years and were then gotten rid of, it looks like some obstruction of justice going on. However, the moonbats won’t be satisfied with that. They want it to be framed as the Bush Junta orchestrating the whole thing. As Steve Benen at Crooks and Liars says: Torture-tape Story Doesn’t Add Up. Well, of course it doesn’t add up for you, Steve. It’s not the scandal you hoped for.
