Necessary Echo: Four Important Reads:

First, William Rivers Pitt registers another of his thoughtful and well-written commentaries, entitled "The Frightened." Read it here.

Next, Robert Parry gives another of his well-researched backgrounders, this time on how George W. Bush pushed Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert into war. Read it here.

The third read is from from Diarist DarkSyde. The piece is entitled: Perspective: How I Learned to stop worrying and get a grip. Of course, the wrong-wing blogs have entered the fray, railing against this article. Read it here.

And one more: On fraudulent words and images, including the outrageous Chuck Roberts conflation of Ned Lamont with Osama Bin Laden (he called Lamont the AlQaeda candidate and pretended others are calling Lamont that. In fact it was Lieberman himself along with the totally discredited, unbelievable and foul-mouthed Vice President). Local wrong-wing bloggers have pumped up that linkage too. Read Huffington here.
