Gateway Pundit has very interesting information on Ray McGovern, who has been calling Rumsfeld a liar. Defenselink.mil has the transcript of Rumsfeld's speech.
No need to rehash, but I am going to say something about/to the media. Not reporting what this guy has done - or what he has said - is just plain wrong. It goes beyond wrong. This is failure to do the basic duties of journalism. When someone has the kind of track record that McGovern has, it needs to be discussed, just as a general's connection with CDI ought to be mentioned.
But they were not. And so, it is time for people to start asking reporters and editors, "Do you want the terrorists to win?" Because it sure looks like they do. And just for the record, this is not making the media a scapegoat. This is asking if the media is undercutting the people in charge of winning the war we are in. Because it sure looks like that is happening.
There might be some people who will think I am trying to perpetuate a Dolchstosslegende ("stab in the back myth") by asking these questions. But it sure looks like a stab in the back, much as Walter Cronkite's comments about the Tet Offensive were.
