Armed Liberal says he might have a positive ID — at the Yarmouk police station, no less, just like the AP said. Notably, he spells the first name “Jamail,” not “Jamil.” Could I have been right about a possible snafu with Arabic names? Could Patterico be right with his “third way” theory? Or could it be that the AP was right all along and we’re about to eat a huge shinola sandwich?

Not mentioned in the E&P piece: a single one of the lingering questions raised by See-Dubya in the two posts at Junkyard Blog that I linked above. But that’s what you get from a paper edited by Greg Mitchell, whose first instinct when any case of journalistic fraud is alleged is to smear the bloggers who brought it to public attention — even when the evidence of fraud comes from journalists themselves.
Oh, and don’t worry — I’m not going to rewrite or delete the tag about us possibly having to eat crow. When I’m wrong, I don’t try to defraud my readers by hiding the evidence. Unlike some people.
