Has the press learned anything?

No, not a damn thing.

The military's Iran-is-attacking-us PowerPoint presentation in Baghdad on Sunday was timed to make it everyone's lead story at the beginning of the weekly news cycle.

The officials providing the "evidence" that may eventually be used to justify an attack on Iran not only wouldn't go on the record, but wouldn't give their names.

Reporters should know better than to use unverifiable information from an unknown source. Especially when the stakes are so high.
