Alberto Gonzales' Department of Justice is to be congratulated. After only two months of investigation they have the New York Times wailing and slobbering as never before. Don't Risen and Keller and Sulzberger like Kansas? Do they have something against the heartland? Admittedly, the view from a cell at Leavenworth doesn't compare to the view from a Fifth Avenue penthouse but they made their choice and all choices have consequences.
I was particularly struck by the Times apologist's touching concern for the illegal combatants held at Gitmo. We're force feeding terrorists who could have been justifiably shot five minutes after capture and the Times is sobbing about their treatment. With a little luck perhaps the writers will be able to entertain us with stories of how convicted traitors are treated within the Federal penal system. The war on terror must be over, al Queada must have signed a peace treaty because otherwise those prisoners should stay right where they are until everybody they served with and under is dead or in custody.
Don't expect anything better out of the Times from now until the arrests and trials. Seditionist cowards on the run have always done anything to keep their miserable carcasses out of the prisons where they belong. We'll be seeing an ocean of ink spilled and a forest of trees felled before they are justifiably put away. With a bit of luck they'll be joined by a few of the leakers from the party which they serve.
