The Washington Post Repeats The "bomb Pakistan" Lie

 

The Washington Post reports today:

Several months ago, McCain criticized Obama for suggesting that he would bomb al-Qaeda targets in Pakistan without that country's approval.

Except, as I've pointed out, Obama never said he wanted to bomb Pakistan. This is totally unequivocal. Alas, this seems to be one of those "facts" that enters the media bloodstream and stays forever, however untrue it may be.
