A Lone Nut For Our Era

Oh, and to digress, I'm NOT a Kennedy assassination conspiracy theorist, although the event still fascinates me as a significant historical turning point...anyway, Greenwald's doing his usual superb and thorough analysis of the latest on the anthrax case.

And whether Ivins was or was not a lone nut doesn't really matter--the sad truth is various strains of wingnuttia (though, as some have pointed out, NOT the Bush administration directly) pointedly used the attacks to push their zealotry and bigotry as a "reasonable" response to Arab "savagery." Turns out that the savagery was certainly of the domestic, home grown variety...Ivins' guilt or innocence is, at this point, academic.

But if it were me, I wouldn't be closing the books on this case just yet...
