Fixated On Losing
War On Terrorism: Thousands of active members of the military sign a letter urging Congress to support the mission in Iraq. But the media, focused on anything that'll make the war look bad, just yawn.
Let anyone who ever wore the uniform voice concern about the war, and the media are immediately interested. How many rent-a-generals, for instance, have we seen, heard from or read about in the last four years who've been critical of our involvement and/or performance in Iraq?
On the other hand, all we heard was crickets chirping as 2,700 soldiers — all on active duty — signed a petition titled "Appeal for Courage" and presented it last week to Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and House Minority Leader John Boehner.
