Iraq Liberated; Women, Children, Animals Hardest Hit

Even as the the New York Times and the Huffington Post both claim that “We each have our own truth“, sometimes respected publications get too carried away even by the endlessly flexible standards of postmodernism. Witness Scott Thomas, the “pseudonym for a soldier currently serving in Baghdad”, according to the New Republic, which published his recent article with a trifecta of victims: women, children and animals, all cruelly abused by U.S. soldiers in Iraq, and all quite possibly imaginary.

Walter Duranty, Jayson Blair, Dan Rather, Adnan Hajj and John Kerry could not be reached for comment. But it certainly allows the folks at the new Media Mythbusters Wiki to hit the ground running.
