Back in October, the Duffel Blog — which is a satirical site, sort of a military-minded version of The Onion — put up a post stating that Guantanamo prisoners were to receive G.I. Bill benefits. And guess what? One of Senator Mitch McConnell’s constituents (a person who like Shapiro is stupid or mendacious or both) reported it as fact to McConnell’s office, which in turn forwarded the note to DoD on the assumption it was fact.
