Sheehan’s Letter “Fake but Accurate?”
Over at the Corner, an e-mailer writes:
Yeah, she’s pretty awful, but isn’t NRO’s line — `Next to those, does it matter if she did or didn’t say her son died for Israel?’ — awfully similar to the CBS position on the Bush National Guard papers — `Fake but accurate’?
The only question I’m interested in is whether Sheehan lied to Anderson Cooper when he confronted her with those statements. I didn’t go digging up that letter and waving it around claiming that Sheehan said her son died for Israel. Clearly, she’s said worse
. In other words, the letter isn’t the issue for me; the issue is whether Sheehan lied when she disavowed it. So, clever comparison, but it’s not the same deal.
