Subject: RE: BS: Liberal Media getting Soldiers Killed...
Does Newsweek count as "Liberal Media"? From what I've seen it looks pretty mainstream, the kind of publication that at least aspires towards the principle that it is right to avoid mixing up news and comment. Or does that count as "liberal"?

What's not clear is to what extent the allegations involved are actually true or not. They don't sound particularly improbable, sadly enough, in the light of what actually has come out from the American Gulag, including the Abu Ghraib photographs.

I would think that the significant thing for the people involved in the disturbances would not have been what some White House spokesperson said, one way or another, nor for that matter what some American publication printed, but whether they believed that things like this, which have been widely reported, had actually happened. Clearly they did believe that.

"Soldiers Killed" - so far it hasn't been actually soldiers getting killed, from what I've seen.

Here's what seems to me a pretty balanced report on all this, putting it into context.
