Oh Yes, This Is Also Free Speech…
It is a good and great thing to have free speech and to use it to express your views. However, when you choose to do so it serves all well if you are able to support your contentions and articulate your views with the support of facts. While telling stories of bogeymen and wicked monsters is also protected speech, it is usually best when not put forward as defensible policy. If someone puts themselves forward to speak as an expert, they should be prepared to have their comments reviewed. Colleen Rowley did not express herself defensibly; in fact she showed her ass. James Lileks
then proceeded to thrash it for her.
Funniest stuff I have read in quite some time.
