Downing Street Minutes

Everybody finally getting it....
    Whatever they call it, it is finally getting some attention, besides on the blogs. John Kerry is trying to get in on it. Ted Kennedy finally says that he gets it. WaPo always get it, sooner or later.

Washington Post finally gets it
World Opinion Roundup: Blair and The Downing Street Memo
by Jefferson Morley

Waynesburg, Pa.: Why has there been so little said about the Downing Street Memo in the U.S.? This is much worse than Watergate in my book. (Watergate did not kill our military personnel and innocent civilians). Seems some smart reporter somewhere would grab this story and run with it in Woodward/Bernstein fashion.

Jefferson Morley: I think some combination of cynicism, complacency and insulation has stifled the instincts of very good reporters.

I also think there is also a failure of leadership at the senior editorial level. The issues raised by the Downing Street minutes are very serious. To pursue them is to invite confrontation. This means that "beat" reporters cannot realistically pursue the story.

I say all this way of explanation, not rationalization. There are several natural follow up stories to the Downing Street memo that we should be pursuing right now.

Proof Bush Fixed The Facts by Ray McGovern May 04, 2005

Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would see those words in black and white—and beneath a SECRET stamp, no less. For three years now, we in Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) have been saying that the CIA and its British counterpart, MI-6, were ordered by their countries' leaders to "fix facts" to "justify" an unprovoked war on Iraq. More often than not, we have been greeted with stares of incredulity.

Can Redford and Hoffman Play the Entire Blogosphere in the Downing Street Memo Movie?

In his otherwise terrific insider's take on the Deep Throat story, former Washington Post editor and columnist Bob Levey says that the "next Watergate" won't happen without "Big Journalism." I couldn't disagree more. It will happen in spite of Big Journo... and because of the "little journalism" of the blogosphere.

The content of the post should be about what you want for the world, whatever that may be. The purpose is not to make a particular political statement, but simply to make a noise. If 30,000 weblogs all post the same unusual word, it WILL be heard.
