Howard Kurtz has an interesting column that explains, I think, the problem with modern journalism Capturing reality is harder than it seems. As Army Gen. David Petraeus’s long-awaited testimony last week failed to sway the debate over the war, partisans on both sides castigated the media for what remains a blurry picture of Iraq. Why, […]

Uniters, not dividers. KUT, Iraq — American commanders in southern Iraq say Shiite sheiks are showing interest in joining forces with the U.S. military against extremists, in much the same way that Sunni clansmen in the western part of the country have worked with American forces against Al Qaeda.

Because they understand that when you raise a generation in the great wobbling blancmange of Deval Patrick-style cultural relativism – nothing […]

Don’t forget that. For Samira Hussein and her family, the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks began at 6:45 a.m. yesterday […]
