Brad DeLong Enraged at WaPo, Calls for Resignations...

and justifiably so. He writes:
There Ought to Be Resignations in Protest and Disgust from the Washington Post Every Day, But Today More than Ever

There is something wrong with anybody who is still working for--or buying--the Washington Post.
The cause of his outrage? Eight years later WaPo is still defending the Saddam-Niger-Yellowcake Story. WaPo writes in an editorial: official British investigation found that President George W. Bush’s statement in a State of the Union address that Britain believed that Iraq had sought uranium in Niger was well-founded.
DeLong continues:
“Well founded,” I suppose, in the sense that (some in) Britain “believed” it. But as we now know, and as the Washington Post itself has reported, our own intelligence agencies, as well as those of other countries, were highly skeptical of the claim...It’s somewhat pathetic that now, years after the Niger uranium claim has been debunked, the Washington Post’s editors are still hiding behind the “Britain believed...” formulation
