There's a great post at The Smallest Minority (HT:HH) on the long history of the relentless terrorist aggression that dragged us into the war we fight today. Too bad none of it is newsworthy to the American press.
And the NYT claims that "everyone knew" about the terrorist finance tracking. Really! Do tell me then, writers Eric Lichtblau and James Risen, if "everyone knew," why was it so important to publish it? How did such a well-known fact qualify as front page news?
We're really not that stupid, guys, so please stop waving the First Amendment for a moment and refer instead to the First Rule of Holes: stop digging.
