More deception from the Washington Post

While the Washington Post frets about a U.S. military “propaganda campaign” against Zarqawi that consists of spreading true information reasonably calculated to save American lives, the Post conducts a propaganda campaign against the administration that’s based on distortion. The latest instance is today’s story on the Bush administration’s statements that certain Iraqi trailers were biological laboratories. As Ed Morrissey shows, the Post’s report is highly deceptive. While trumpeting the fact that a team of experts concluded after the invasion that, contrary to the administration’s claim, the trailers were not bio labs, it does not reveal until a dozen paragraphs later that two other teams of experts reached a contrary conclusion. Thus, the view of the team that the Post highlights appears to have been a minority view at the time the administration referred to the trailers as bio labs.
