Eason Jordan, Malkin and Curt

Lorie Byrd reports that Eason Jordan, whom neanderthal bloggers were accused of tire-necklacing a while back, has decided to head up an Iraq information site.

Ed Morrissey has the full and accurate background on that whole story, and why Jordan’s new gig is full of irony.

I’m kind of wondering what else it’s full of. Seems when Jordan’s new venture was announced, Michelle Malkin challenged him to get to the bottom of the “who is Jamil Hussein” question and Jordan has invited her and Curt from Flopping Aces along for the search.

Should be interesting, but my antennae are up on this. Seems to me Jordan would not invite Malkin to Iraq to “look for” Hussein any more than a smart lawyer would ask a witness a question to which he does not already know the answer. And distrust is so prevelant on both sides that neither left nor right will ever accept any report filed. What a mess. But who knows? Maybe everyone is completely on the up-and-up, all is sweetness and light and everyone will get along swimmingly. After all, I’ve been writing about how “left and right” need to pull together, somewhere…maybe this will be the place?

Okay, I’m done giggling. Let’s see how this unfolds. CBS has its eye focused on all of this, and the very prolific Jules Crittenden is also watching and has a good roundup of blogger reaction.

    What I want to know is, who’s paying for Jordan’s trip with Malkin and Flopping Aces. Because I can not believe it’s on EJ’s dime.

    Yes, who is funding this is a really good question. Another really good question – why do they have to go “look” for Jamil Hussein if the AP has been quoting him for a couple of years, now?

    “And distrust is so prevelant on both sides that neither left nor right will ever accept any report filed” Sadly, I couldn’t agree more. I feel that way myself, to my dismay. Without bothering to say which side it is I don’t trust, I wonder, when will trust and civil discourse return? Was it ever here?
