Now that we know that Atrios is a fellow named Duncan Black who works for the George Soros-funded Media Matters organization, we can apply some Michael Moore logic and uncover his motivation. Soros is a major investor in the Carlyle Group, which Moore ... [Read More]

» Blinded by the Shite from QandO
So, Atrios is Duncan Black. As a bit of trivia, it's interesting. It's not quite like unmasking "Deep Throat", but perhaps it is the blogosphere equivalent. That, however, deserves nothing more than a "huh". Instapundit points out the real issue....... [Read More]

Unless the ex-US ambassador to the Sudan is a Sudanese official, they can't even get that part right.

Robert Crawford

Clinton mentioned the deal himself in a speech a couple of years ago. Although I guess Clinton's not exactly the most trustworthy source...

TC-LeatherPenguin

I love when I read things like "Hannity thrice repeated ... an article by..."
Hannity has the audio from Clinton's speech. He doesn't quote the NewsMax article, he rolls the tape and let's you hear the claim come straight out of Bubba's mouth.

I've confronted Atrios once or twice with factual errors; he seems to be quite comfortable with them. I don't think anything you might tell me about him would surprise me; unsurprising what you wrote, and also unsurprising if he turned out to be a right-wing plant. I've got orchids that are more intelligent, or at least they make a better argument.

Angus Jung

"I've got orchids that are more intelligent, or at least they make a better argument."

I'll have what he's smoking!

Jon Henke

Say, Tom, can we start calling him "Oliver Ruddy"?

WillieSytle

Dude, I don't think "I don't care" means what you think it means.

bender

ghost wars pretty much publicised the information in the form of a well documented book.

its not a suprise to me at all.

it appears that they got their facts straight too - I wonder if any of the deniers have bothered to read that book?

HH

I remember Ricky West's challenge to Atrios which he flunked... then Andrew Sullivan's challenge which he flunked.

Rob Read

The Big Lie is the creation of the hard left. Now they've just diversified into lots of little lies!

Crank

Baseball great Lou Brock used to market "Brock-a-brellas," umbrella hats you could wear on your head. Not a great commercial success, I should add.

I actually think the mental image of Atrios and Oliver Willis sitting around wearing their tinfoil-lined Brock-a-brellas is a fitting one.

Dave

Here are some ratings of his from his student at UC Irvine.

Slartibartfast

Funny that the last three ratings were right after the Atrios identity became widely known.

Sigivald

Bender: What book, denying what? Give specifics... and, of course, why a book should take precedence over all the other claims made at the time.

Certainly books are not automatically correct (see Joe Wilson).

Forbes

Sigvald--It's "Ghost Wars" by Steve Coll, now managing editor of the WaPo. Subtitled: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001. A good read. Less impressive/thorough about bin Laden than the subtitle suggests. Mostly CIA,and Pakistan/Saudi involvment in Afghanistan. A few side trips with bin Laden and his travels in parallel with the Afghan story. Some of the "revealing" info in the media re: 9/11 commission were already reported therein. Worthwhile read if you're interested in good background. (I only picked up on two minor mistakes--it's mostly reporting, not asserting.)

"Walter Cronkite"

I note that Atrios has not addressed this on his Eschaton blog. Since I have been blocked from commenting there (crushing my dissent!), I invite others to post remarks regarding Duncan Black in the comments there.

RW

Teresa Kerry would have trouble paying me enough to wade into the cesspool of eschaton's comments sections. Methinks time would be better spent hammering nails into my scrotum while reading Democratic Underground out loud to a tribe of deaf-mutes in hopes of bringing rain to the Sahara desert.

sol

And if the deaf-mutes turned out to be naked female Venusians more beautiful than any Earthly woman times 1000 from another time dimension/cosmos who could give you sexual pleasure times 1000 anything any human has ever experienced?

I know, this is all logically messed-up...

TM

Yeah, but don't stop now...

Brian

I have to wonder, does anyone think Hannity is just a little wrong to act like this was such a black and white situation? He makes it seem like Sandy Berger walked into the Oval Office, told Clinton about the offer, and then walked out after Clinton said "no" and went back to doing a crossword puzzle. Nobody in his right mind thinks of the situation that way, but that's the way Sean Hannity wants to present the situation. It's simpleminded and highly deceptive, but why I expect anything more from this guy is beyond me.
