The New York Times
But if you stood back for just a second and thought about what was happening in that courtroom in Fort Hood, Tex. - a task that could be accomplished only by reading newspapers, which provided the detailed coverage network TV didn't even attempt - you had to wonder if we had any more moral sense than Britain's widely reviled 'clown prince.' The lad had apparently managed to reach the age of 20 in blissful ignorance about World War II. Yet here we were in America, in the midst of a war that is going on right now, choosing to look the other way rather than confront the evil committed in our name in a prison we 'liberated' from Saddam Hussein in Iraq. What happened in the Fort Hood courtroom this month was surely worthy of as much attention as Harry's re-enactment of 'Springtime for Hitler': it was the latest installment in our government's cover up of war crimes.
The mainstream media - out to lunch, wholly owned by the bushies, what?! it galls me to realize that this news is not only not being disseminated by television news sources, but that the omission or neglect by those providers of information means that huge numbers of citizens will never know, because they actually think they get all the news they need from tv.
Also check out Eve of Destruction. yep. gw is president, it is not just a bad dream.
Who am i, what am i
A picture's worth
I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.
