Greenwald vs. Goldberg

Aka, Goldberg vs. History. I love how easily Greenwald hands Jonah's ass to him on a platter:
It is hard to overstate how false Goldberg's claim is, as even Byron York reported, in Goldberg's own magazine, National Review (emphasis added): "Instead of striking a strong blow against terrorism, the action [launching cruise missiles at Osama bin Laden] set off a howling debate about Clinton's motives. The president ordered the action three days after appearing before the grand jury investigating the Monica Lewinsky affair, and Clinton's critics accused him of using military action to change the subject from the sex-and-perjury scandal -- the so-called 'wag the dog' strategy."

Leading GOP political figures and pundits repeatedly voiced such criticisms against Clinton:

You can read the damning list from there. Jonah is forced to admit that it's a good list, but strikes back with the assertion that...Greenwald's annoying. Snap!
