Is Bud Kennedy of the Star-Telegram trustworthy?

Bud Kennedy is a columnist for the Dallas Star-Telegram, and back on June 29 he offered "Few minutes with Minutemen is plenty of time for GOP group":
The Texas Minutemen brought their borderline paranoia to the heart of Aggieland this week.

A Republican club invited the Wise County-based Minutemen to tell about their escapades guarding the Rio Grande. But what they heard was too loony even for Aggies.

When the Minutemen's quirky leader started rambling about a secret plan to "merge Canada and Mexico with the United States," the good Republicans in the home of the George Bush Presidential Library started squirming in their chairs behind half-eaten barbecue plates...
They sound Wacky with a capital-W! Except, then we visit, the United States government's website for the precursor to this plan. And, we learn that Bush, Fox, and the leaders of Canada have met to discuss the precursor. And, then we read all the very detailed articles Jerome Corsi has compiled on the plan. All of those details are in the public record and thus would have been available to Kennedy if only he'd looked (assuming of course he didn't).

So, you have to wonder. Are Bud Kennedy and his editors just useful idiots who made an intellectually dishonest mistake, or something else? Whatever the case, it's clear that you should take anything he says with a huge mountain of salt.

Contact their reader's advocate and suggest they do just a bit more research before printing something: dhouse *at*


The regulated media appear to feel constrained to maintain an omerta on this confederation plan which would absorb dirty and anti-American Mexico, even into our military.
Lots of people in this country know that agreements of this type require a super-majority in the Senate, so the traitors had better notice that not everyone is as disloyal as them.
