Pay no attention to the people behind the curtain

I told you so3

by folkbum

I was hoping to see three of these today, since triads are infinitely more powerful than one-offs. And what do you know, three of them magically appeared:
  1. I told you so: "The National Bureau of Economic Research said Monday that the U.S. has been in a recession since December 2007, making official what most Americans have already believed about the state of the economy ."

  2. I told you so: "The Bush administration backed off proposed crackdowns on no-money-down, interest-only mortgages years before the economy collapsed, buckling to pressure from some of the same banks that have now failed. It ignored remarkably prescient warnings that foretold the financial meltdown, according to an Associated Press review of regulatory documents."

  3. I told you so: "We're told that our only options are to persist in carrying out torture or to face another terrorist attack. But there truly is a better way to carry out interrogations--and a way to get out of this false choice between torture and terror."
