Does your head reel when you hear the rightwingers throw around facts that just don't seem to fit together? Do you wonder where you an get some REAL facts, not the mass-produced ones you hear on Fox News or rightwing talk radio? Then this is for you.

Check out CounterSpin. A Project of The Old American Century (POAC), the POAC Counter-spin Site shows the pseudo facts from the right AND the reality.

Here's one example from Counterspin.

The talking point:
Congress and Senate received the same intelligence regarding Iraq before the war as the White house.

The facts:
Bush, Cabinet told on 9/21 that Iraq had no links to 9/11. Bush, Cabinet declined to share this info with Congress, America

Key Bush Intelligence Briefing Kept From Hill Panel

The former CIA official who coordinated U.S. intelligence on the Middle East accuses Bush administration of "cherry-picking" intelligence to go to war with Iraq

BTW, the links don't work here but go to the CounterSpin site for more thorough infomation and hotlinks.

Its always nice to have fact-based facts.
