|Description||Somebody owes Howard Dean an apology. |
Over the past few days, the former Vermont governor and Democratic Presidential candidate has endured a barrage of bad press and nasty commentary, simply because he expressed honest doubts about the government’s latest terror alarm. Republican pundits and politicians predictably denounced him. Senator John Kerry disowned Dr. Dean’s remarks, and Senator Joe Lieberman went further, suggesting that anyone who harbors such doubts must not be “in their right mind.”
In short, to think that the Bush administration might issue an alert for political advantage is a symptom of madness. The latest news reports, however, indicate that Dr. Dean’s suspicions were hardly unfounded.
