Howard Fineman's Curious History
12:31 PM, Oct 13, 2005 • By DANIEL MCKIVERGAN
Newsweek's Howard Fineman's latest piece, "The Conservative Crack-up," is an interesting read but it could use a bit more fact. Take, for example, his first line that it was "the 'neocons' who convinced him to go to war there [in Iraq]" as if no others supported the president's action. Fineman, of course, isn't the first to airbrush the historical record as Robert Kagan explained in http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/11/AR200509... " target=_blank>this Washington Post piece, "On Iraq, Short Memories."
