That from theMcClatchey reporters who seem to have had it with Scottie, the Bushies and fellow so called journalists. And rightly so…
Second, we find it a wee bit preposterous — and we are being
diplomatic here — that a man who slavishly – no, robotically! —
defended President Bush’s policies in Iraq and elsewhere is trying to
“set the record straight” (and sell a few books) five years and more
after the invasion, with U.S. troops still bravely fighting and dying
to stabilize that country.
But the responses to McClellan from the Bush administration and
media bigwigs, history-bending as they are, compel us to jump in. As we
like to say around here, it’s truth to powertime, not just for the politicians but also for some folks in our own business.
