Some people dare call it treason!

Members of the 101st Keyboarders are cranking up the engine on the old “Blame the Media” Train. The distinguished professor from Tennessee offers:


What is Mort’s must-read? A whole lot of this:

By now, Abu Ghraib has been a lead story for weeks. And Congress has gone so far as to pull top U.S. commanders back from the battle zone to grill them about it – just as America’s enemies are launching what they hope will be the Iraqi equivalent of the 1968 Tet offensive, hoping to undermine the June 30 handover of power to Iraqis.

Really Mort? Sadly, No!:

Mr. Warner made public a letter he sent to Mr. Rumsfeld last week offering to hear witnesses by video teleconferencing if necessary. The Pentagon told him, the senator said, that Gen. John P. Abizaid, the overall commander of operations in Iraq, was already in Washington and that the two other senior officers scheduled to testify Wednesday, Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez and Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller, were on their way here for a series of meetings.

Roy Edroso has the best take on the media’s impact:

Perhaps the General actually means that the perfidious networks physically used radio waves, in the manner of mad scientists in old horror movies, to disorient our troops. Imagine our fighting men clutching their helmets as curved lines of force radiate across the screen: “Foreign policy feeling… weak…” gasps the GI. “Feel… sudden compulsion to… negotiate a settlement…” While off behind a nearby sandhill, Bin Laden and Ted Turner cackle fiendishly and rub their hands.

Remember folks, wars are lost because of liberal criticism. Conservative incompetence has nothing to do with it.
