"False reports from Iraq undermine confidence in government and media" runs Raymond Schroth's slughead. He means ours, not theirs.

[Lt. Gen. William Wallace] was acknowledging what others had felt for days: The stretched-out supply lines, the unexpected sand storms, the refusal of the citizens of Basra (which we had decided for a while to bypass) and Baghdad to welcome their would-be liberators with open arms, the Iraqi shift to guerrilla tactics, the slowness in setting up a second front in the North, and the rising toll of civilian dead in Baghdad where two missiles had smashed into marketplaces -- all suggested that perhaps the Pentagon had made some mistakes.

Cute, Father Ray.

Will the NCR's expert on media ethics set us an example of confidence-building candor? Will next week's column include an admission that morose delectation can cloud one's judgment as badly as jingoism? You make the call.
