On Sunday — as we all must know by now — Paul Krugman had the temerity to say something too truthful for the right wing:

And then the [9/11] attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

This got the author of “Known and Unknown” and other crimes against logic all perturbed:

Why would Krugman possibly state such a thing?

CBS News has learned that barely five hours after American Airlines Flight 77 plowed into the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld was telling his aides to come up with plans for striking Iraq — even though there was no evidence linking Saddam Hussein to the attacks.

Maybe we should give Pat Tillman’s family or a few others with similar stories a chance to offend the poor man alone in a small room?
