When the Media Worm Turns

Wow, could it finally be???
The media is starting to ask some tough questions of the administration and not let Donny Rumsfeld reach up their butts and pull the strings?

In an excellent article, Susan J. Douglas says it's really happening.

Better late than never, I guess.

Outta There

If there was any good reason to go there in the first place (and I don't think there really was), I see no reason for us to still be in Iraq now. If Dick Cheney and his greed-obsessed friends at Halliburton see business opportunities there, let 'em do it on their own, not with the blood of American soldiers. Most of those soldiers - it's important to remember - are about the same age as the president's daughters, who I assume are spending the summer partying their brains out in Texas.

Finally, we see what I've been waiting for: the families of troops beginning to speak up about this.

Also, related thoughts just yesterday from Paul Krugman: Thanks for the M.R.E.'s and Amitai Etzioni: Stop Obsessing Over Saddam.
