    Michael Asher, science blog at the Daily Tech, Aug 29, 2007
    Note: the survey in question went unpublished and some pretty significant criticisms have been made against it or related work by the survey's author (not Michael Asher). I (who likewise am not Michael Asher!) got a little confused about which work by the survey's author was in question but I dug far enough to run into the significant questions). Anyway, part of the problem was that Benny Peiser had already done the work. SO, click here to skip down to Peiser's piece.

  • Transcript: Sen. Jay Rockefeller on Fox News Sunday
    Interview choice corrected - I had a July 2003 interview here but this is the right one.
    In this interview, Rockefeller claims that Bush had said that there was an imminent threat from Iraq. Snow counters him with evidence to the contrary, including where Bush said in the 2003 State of the Union that we should NOT wait for the threat to become imminent. Then Snow quotes Rockefeller himself having said, a year earlier (Oct 10, 2002), that the question of imminence itself was outdated ever since 9/11/01 -- so how could Rockefeller have misconstrued what Bush said? Jay Rockefeller is now the head of the no-longer non-partisan Senate Intelligence Committee.
