Palin, Cameron, Eisenstadt, Africa: Whom to Believe?
Various authorities online, many of whom accepted first the Cameron story and then the Eisenstadt admission for gospel, now have to choose between believing the original Cameron story, believing the Eisenstadt claim that it was bogus and he was its source, or believing the sources who "on background" (i.e. anonymously so far as readers are concerned) say that Eisenstadt was not Cameron's source. As best I can tell, nobody has any solid basis for any of those views. My own guess is that:
1. Eisenstadt wasn't Cameron's source and
2. Whoever the source was, the story itself was bogus.
