Reverend Moon's Media and the Saddam/Oklahoma City Bombing "Connection"

frank gaffney sun myung moon moonie neo-con Frank Gaffney, a prominent neo-conservative who writes for the Washington Times, was recently on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews and revived the discredited neo-con talking point that Saddam Hussein was involved in the Oklahoma City bombing (Crooks and Liars has the video and transcript). As sane people know, the ghastly crime was concocted and executed by two American right-wing fanatics, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols) and not a shred of evidence has linked them to Saddam or his regime. This has not stopped people like Gaffney from spreading this misinformation not only on Hardball but on the pages of Moon's Washington Times.

UPDATE: (via Roger Ailes) Richard Miniter has been named
editor of the editorial pages and vice president of opinion of the Washington Times.
