Well, as Bush said during the 200 campaign, you may not agree with him but at least you know where he stands. And he has both feet planted firmly in Bizarroworld.
Two weeks ago, Amir Taheri published an op-ed in Canada's National Post about an Iranian law that forced Jews to wear a yellow stripe. The story, reminiscent of Nazi Germany, quickly provoked outrage, but was just as quickly revealed to be a total fabrication. It also ran in the New York Post.
Apparently this is just the sort of reliable advice that President Bush needs. Yesterday, Taheri had a face-to-face with the President as one of a small group of "experts" on Iraq that visited the White House.
According to Press Secretary Tony Snow, the experts were invited to the White House for their "honest opinions" on Iraq.Taheri was ostensibly there to discuss Iraq, but the guy only became news-- and garnered an invitation-- after spreading a phony story about Iran that fits perfectly into the BushCo doctrine of spreading democracy and freedom through war.
