A smattering of links

New Memos Detail Early Plans for Invading Iraq - a detailed article in the LA Times discussing the Downing Street Minutes and other related memos that have been recently released. The article has links (on a sidebar) to full-text scans of six recently released secret memos, and also makes an important point:
"The documents contain little discussion about whether to mount a military campaign. The focus instead is on how the campaign should be presented to win the widest support and the importance for Britain of working through the United Nations so an invasion could be seen as legal under international law."
Web of cold-blooded lies - an article by Eric Margolis (on which takes a scathing look at the statements made in the Downing Street Memo.

Don't Follow the Money - an opinion piece by Frank Rich in the New York Times, looks at the recent unveiling of Deep Throat, and, unlike some writers, he keeps in mind who the real criminals of Watergate were.

The Foreign Language of Choice - an article by George Lakoff (on AlterNet) discussing the language changes liberals should make in the fight to keep abortion rights.
