PLAGIARISTS FOR LIBERATION….Apparently the British dossier that Colin Powell waved around at the UN yesterday was actually cribbed (without attribution) from three public sources, including an article written by a grad student. This accusation first floated around the ether yesterday, and today Channel 4 confirmed it.

This doesn’t really matter in any substantive way, but it does make you shake your head (Brad DeLong bangs his head against a wall, I just shake mine). What the hell are these guys thinking?
