The source I quoted was in my original post, but was snipped in the replies:

http://www.counterpunch.org/madsen11282003.html

After checking other sources, I agree with you -- this article on
counterpunch.org is incorrect. My statement was based on this article, so
is also incorrect.

This raises an interesting question: how does one decide what the
threshold of credibility is for a non-mainstream source of information? --
By the quality of the writing? By the popularity of the source? By the
degree of intersection with one's own politics? By the quality of the web
design?
