Here's your right wing head slapper of the week:

Bill O'Reilly said on his show that if what we know now about WMDs was known before the war, he wouldn't have supported the war because he didn't feel Iraq was a big enough threat.

He also said almost all of the WMD intel came from the same source, namely a group of Iraqis who wanted Saddam out no matter what it took.

So to recap, Bill O'Reilly - the self proclaimed best journalist in the world - backed a war based on info from just one source.

Now I'm no fair and balanced network commentator, but isn't it Journalism 101 to get more than one source to verify your info before you run a story? Why did a war require less verification than a piece on the six o' clock news?
