"The right goes further into loony tunes land," writes Atrios of Fox News-er John Gibson's allegation that Oklahoma City was an Iraqi operation. "Consider how offensive this [Gibson quote] is: 'If McVeigh were just the grunt — mixing the chemicals, driving the truck, setting the timer, and running off — guilty though he might be, if the bombing was a plot by a foreign government, his lawyer would have had a chance at the sentencing hearing to argue that others were more responsible and McVeigh should not be executed.' Yes, the guy who mixed the chemicals, drove the truck, set the timer, and killed 168 people was 'just the grunt.' Thanks Fox News." (Eschaton)
