WaPo Dana Milbank Classifies Sibel Edmonds as "Kiss & Tell"

Edmonds hasn't written a book yet, has she? Though what she's written already could fill one. Milbank also mentions these people who've made statements on or were witnesses to 9/11 related things, i'm not familiar with all the names in his list: George Tenet, Richard Clarke, Paul O'Neill, Christy Todd-Whitman, Karen Kwiatkowski, Coleen Rowley

I'd rather the front page be about Lindsay Lohan than giving McClellan his due.
