Cognitive Dissonance

Now, here's some cognitive dissonance for you.

The WaPo editorial page calls supporters of Charles Freeman, who just withdrew from consideration for the chair of the National Intelligence Council after being hounded out by supporters of Israel, 'conspiracy theorists' for suggesting that supporters of Israel did this.

On the other hand, the Post's long-time columnist David Broder suggests in his column that Freeman was indeed hounded out by supporters of Israel. Is the Post saying that their own Pulitzer-prize winning columnist is a conspiracy-theorist?


You know, I am really getting tired of people using the slur of 'conspiracy theory' to try and shut down discussion about sensitive issues.
