Unnamed Sources vs. Unnamed Sources
Topic: Newsmax

"Unnamed sources in the Pentagon with their own agenda have been leaking false information about the killing of civilians in Haditha by Marines last November," begins an Aug. 25 NewsMax article by Phil Brennan. To whom does Brennan attribute this claim? Unnamed sources with their own agenda, of course -- Brennan cites anonymous "Marine intelligence sources" and " one well-placed NewsMax source" to counter "the usual unnamed sources" making claims about Haditha.

It's a good thing nobody at NewsMax has a sense of irony; otherwise, this wouldn't have seen the light of day.
