Good one! I'm sure CNN, and the rest of the news agencys that have been infected by Liberalism, would simply report that as bad news. The Liberal media just reports things as they want people to see. Not how they actually happened. They'd rather show the world a couple of G.I.s being attacked every day than show the thousand of Iraqi civilians that we help every day. It's a freakin shame. #%* DAMN LIBERALS! They'll never learn.
These guys who wrote the article are not exactly peaceniks having come to Jesus. Pollack in 2002' wrote a book making the case for the Iraq invasion that got a lot of good press including mention by Sec. Of State Powell. Here's the book.
O' Hanlon earlier this year wrote an op-ed piece for the
Washington Post arguing for the surge.
I only off this up as the other day I heard a conservative talkshow host (sorry but can't remember who, it was from a distance) making a compelling case that these guys represent the democrats in some way and suggests they are covering their bases. I do think in some respects that is true but IMO it's not through these 2 gentlemen as from your perspective, they were already ahead of the curve so to speak.
Just thought I'd offer some background on these 2 in case you
might be slightly interested.
