They knew the story was false, and printed it anyway. They did it deliberately to make money on sensationalism and to make money.
What? Is that unreasonable? Overstating a mistake? You say that Newsweek was given faulty info they believed to be reliable? You say that as long as Newsweek reviews its internal procedures to figure out the intelligence failure, all's well?
But, somehow it's ok to say that Bush "knew" there were no WMD's in Iraq? Somehow, it's ok to say that Bush deliberately went to war in Iraq just for (insert conspiratorial reason here)?
