I was hoping someone would make this point about Colin Powell's self-serving characterization of the latest Bin Laden tape. Actually, I had only remembered that Powell had once written off Bin Laden's attempts to link himself to Palestinians. Saletan points out that the Secretary of State dismissed Bin Laden's claim of a connection to Iraq too: "Sixteen months ago, Powell wanted to isolate Bin Laden from other Muslims, so he said Bin Laden was lying about being involved in Iraq. Now Powell wants to justify war against Iraq, so he says Bin Laden is telling the truth." Fortunately, the liberal media will never let him get away with that... will it?
