you`ve always struck me as someone with a more than reasonable amount of intelligence but recently your comments over the Guardians credibility have
"what the Guardian has to offer in respect to post presented in this thread and to be honest the periodical simply does not measure up"
When in reality no credibility exist what is it exactly that you want?
Guardian has no credibility
So what is the point of suggesting that in this particular case it does?
The UK government on Saturday denied a report that Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and his U.S. counterpart Colin Powell had serious doubts about the
quality of intelligence they received on Iraq's weapons programmes.
The Guardian, quoting a diplomatic source, said the pair had met shortly before a crucial U.N. Security Council meeting in February and both expressed
their "deep concerns about the intelligence" they were getting on Iraq.
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said the report was "untrue."
To put it in other words Guardian is lying."
There have been other comments from you over "the periodical" of similiar vain but the above but the context is in place (you have also not been the
only one but since you have always seemed reasonable the comments you`ve made are more disappointing)
What has been said in the Guardian is no more or no less than has been said in other news sources, yet due to some perceived "problem" with the
guardian you are willing to disregard.
Most people who saw the interview will infer that the Waldorf Transcript does indeed exist and denial is based on an error about the date.
The interrview will do nothing to stop the hunt.This morning the media smell blood.
Here is the BBC report of the interview.
so wheres the comment when the beeb reports something the Guardian does?
Your reticence over one source does you know you no credit.
If John or Dom had posted this from the BBC website I doubt very much the same reaction would have been given.
Apologies if you take offence at this but for one so seemingly intelligent there is a blind spot in your thinking. You should be able to tell the
difference between a papers politics and its reporting.
