SR Letter: Media Doomed the War

It's a no-win situation in Iraq because of you, the biased news media. The editorial page for the Sunday edition of The Spokesman-Review sub-headline reads, "Our view: Bush should begin to withdraw troops from Iraq." Sounds like cut and run to me. Front page headline Monday: "Bush plan skepticism surges." The anti-war drums have started drumming and the Democrats haven't been in control of Congress a week. I recently saw on one of the C-SPANs a program that featured the Iraq Study Group made upp of James Baker, Lee Hamilton, Sandra Day O'Connor, Leon Panetta and others. Leon Panett spoke, saying that the United States would never win in Iraq because this nation is so divided. Sandra Day O'Connor was quick to add shortly thereafter that the divisiveness existed because of you, the news media, and she was looking at the audience.
