You Just Knew It Would Be This Way

The New York Times lede editorial runs 521 words. Of those, nine could be interpreted as showing some small support for our troops:

That’s it. The rest is brow-furrowed-over-pointy-forehead concern about the world those troops will be helping to remake. It’s poorly-written, poorly-reasoned, almost entirely unencumbered by facts — and shows, through neglect, little but disdain for the men and women of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Raines can get screwed.
