Moments of compassion punctuate Iraq war

Snapshots of bravery and compassion from the war front

Mystery virus of the mind infects media, twists truth

It must have been the sandstorm. Remember a couple of weeks ago when everyone in Iraq was blinded by the whorl of dust? Today we might figure that embedded in those blistering grains of hard dust was a meme, one of those catchy ideas that gets implanted in the human mind and multiplies through the culture like a virus.

Arnett

For the second time in his long career, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Peter Arnett has slipped over to the wrong side of the story. In giving an interview to Iraqi television in which he stated a number of his opinions, Arnett committed the unpardonable sin of becoming the news instead of reporting it. More

Protesters who continue during war hate America

Let's be frank: A certain percentage of Americans hate this country. Some are right-wing militia types who advocate the overthrow of the government.
