Netanyahu condemned the comment
I too will heretofore condemn any speech about me that tends to convey the truth to my detriment.

...that'd make the Jewish "World" about as credible as it would be under Foxman. Actually they're pretty damn lucky no one really sees him that way outside of whatever weird Zionist cults happen to. Or is that take widespread?

...and after the no veto at UNSC, take 'em straight to ICC.

Whoops. ...some memory hole or another means revising the 99%-certain bit. But he told essentially the same story in Rory Kennedy's Ghosts of Abu Graib. http://youtu.be/bcGMsfs5Kt4?t=12m38s . He did tell it in a humorous way somewhere.

99% certain it was Sgt Ken Davis in either Errol Morris's documentary/interviews film Standard Operating Procedure. ( https://archive.org/details/StandardOperatingProc... ) or one of the 'outtakes.'

Pig flu, bird flu, ... flu-proper, ... flu like illness...
They all go away as a scare-you issue as people more or less ignore it. And they kill almost as few Americans as 'terrorism.' I'm getting to the point where I think they're spreading it and/or feeding obvious concerns for attention. ...an obvious thought when you start noticing the people who didn't get fired for selling Iraq are dwelling on it.

...the 'abundance of caution' rhetoric probably has something to do with not embarrassing the WH.

I think it's a given that the story was suppressed by Israelis, certainly there and probably here. I wouldn't overdo the convenient-failure-of-omniscience, though. They'll also get it outrageously wrong in the far corners of the world...e.g. Ghadafi's Viagra-doped troops, pretty much anything that could fall under the header 'Invasion of Ukraine,' ... They're most conspicuously a mix of stupid, cowardly, and flatly evil... surely the next witch they sell will be doing a Viagra-doped invasion of Canada. Then, when it turns out he isn't, he-reeeeally-means-to.

Of course, now that I pick a pair of examples, it occurs to me there were obvious Israeli interests there, too.

Not sure an original reporting staff could mean you just don't miss anything. I'd imagine that on just one story you could be stuck waiting a week for facts to come in without it (while dozens of others spin or ignore them), or it might take the same amount of time to chase 'em down yourself.

...didn't Saddam Hussein do that while withdrawing from Kuwait? ...Now, in that case you could argue in more than one way that Iraq was not destroying someone else's property. But USg would be (and always was).
