An Unpleasant Trip Down Memory Lane

Via FAIR (Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting):
"Cal Thomas declared (4/16/03): "All of the printed and voiced prophecies should be saved in an archive. When these false prophets again appear, they can be reminded of the error of their previous ways and at least be offered an opportunity to recant and repent. Otherwise, they will return to us in another situation where their expertise will be acknowledged, or taken for granted, but their credibility will be lacking."

Gathered here are some of the most notable media comments from the early days of the Iraq War."

Yet more evidence that when people say something bad is going to happen, waiting a few weeks and declaring they were wrong is a bad plan. Or, in other words, it looks like the yaysayers were wrong again.

(thanks to a reader for the tip).

    Joys of the internet, mate. Now we can watch history being repeated, only this time we have footnotes.
