Maybe Not Oliver Stone

Maybe not a "conspiracy" in the true sense of the word, but "the Moose" as he like to refer to himself tries too hard to play it down the middle and takes a dump all over this issue:

Agree or disagree with the judgment to go to war, it was not the result of an Oliver Stone-like conspiracy. And it's hard to believe that a CIA operative was all that concerned about her identity being revealed and overseas contacts compromised when she and her husband posed for a photo spread in Vanity Fair.

Boy is the Moose missing the point. The Champollion doesn't know much but the Champollion does know that the "decision" to go to war wasn't just ill-advised, it was pushed on an unsuspecting public with not just plain hyperbole but ginned-up phony baloney "evidence". Maybe not a "conspiracy" but the Champollion thinks Oliver Stone could probably make a decent movie out of this one (though I would prefer Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer, and Michael McKean).
