THE NEWSPAPER OF RECORD IN THE RUN-UP TO THE IRAQ WAR

Charles Pierce at Esquire:
The "public editor" of The New York Times tells us today that the paper's coverage of the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War is likely to be less of a hoot than back in the drum-banging days when Judy Miller was standing atop a great pile of stove-piped bullshit while Bill Keller threw roses at her feet.
 How I wish I could draw a cartoon.

UPDATE from the comments by Paul (A.):
Then there is this letter from a veteran. (h/t Crooks & Liars).

No cartoon necessary.
The letter brought tears to my eyes.   What unnecessary suffering for many just so Cheney/Bush could flex their muscles and pound their chests.
