You can’t have “Compared to What?” without comparing what’s in question. In the aftermath of 9/11, the marquee evidence used to sell a war in the Middle East is as critical as comparison gets.

That guy looks like he’s on point — don’t ya think?
Sowell’s 2-minute read is 752 words — not one of which addresses the tubes that took us to war. Compare his piece to my 7-part series that’s 2 hours and 40 minutes (with props on display, no less).
This mountain of information was publicly available before he wrote that article — and not one word about it.
How do you reconcile that?
You couldn’t carry Sowell’s jockstrap
Does that strike you as Sowell’s standards?
Looking through your feed you obviously hate Thomas Sowell I take it. How about Henry Ford? Do you hate him as well?
“What hard evidence do you have?”
How I long to find a Sowell supporter who asks that question sincerely seeking the answer.
Trying to reach Sowell’s army of apologists is akin to having a debate about leaving the EU with people arguing to end apartheid (after it’s already ended, no less).
These people make it impossible to rein them in on what the issue is actually about — as they butcher the principles they praise.
Even if you prefer the word of politicians and pundits — couldn’t you at least consider the word of nuclear scientists, physicists, and top-intelligence officers?
