An Easy Prediction

The "Truthers" will ignore this whole brouhaha because it doesn't fit their worldview of Philip Zelikow as a tool of the Bush Administration:

On April 21, Philip Zelikow, who was counselor to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during the Bush administration, revealed on Foreign Policy's "Shadow Government" blog that he wrote a memo in 2005 disputing the conclusions of Bush Justice Department lawyers that torture was legal. The existence of such a memo was a surprise. But Zelikow also disclosed that the "White House attempted to collect and destroy all copies of my memo."

I actually read the original blog post when it came out, and have been somewhat surprised that the Troofers haven't noticed Zelikow's blog, since the post got picked up on Memeorandum and was much-commented upon. If nothing else you'd think one of the kooks would screech about the title of the blog: Shadow Government is one of Alex Jones catchphrases.
