Toles on the Downing Street Memo

Tom Toles remains the best political cartoonist in the mainstream American press (I referred to one of his better efforts here). Now he tackles the fact that his colleagues in the Washington Post intentionally failed to cover the lying basis for the war on Iraq, and were thus caught aiding and abetting the Bush Administration in starting an illegal war that has turned into a disaster. In order to get this cartoon published Toles either has a lot of pull at the Post (as well he should), or there are people at the Post who are horrified (as well they should be) at what that newspaper, and almost all other American newspapers, did.
