Today’s editorial in the Anniston Star (published in Anniston, Alabama) is entitled Worst Days. An excerpt.
Cheney said in a televised interview last week that the day he shot Whittington was “one of the worst days of my life.” But every day in the United States and Iraq, people are suffering the worst days of their lives as they learn of the deaths of sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, and husbands and wives in a foolhardy war that is largely the doing of the vice president.
The media spent last week obsessing over what Cheney had done with a shotgun. But sober minds must not forget what the vice president, as one of the main architects and propagandists of the Iraq war, has done with the nation’s military.
