Gross Incompetence and Dereliction of Duty

The former commander of US forces in Iraq, General Ricardo Sanchez, is now retired.

Guess what? He wrote a book.

Guess what? He accuses the Bush administration of "gross incompetence and dereliction of duty.”

Guess what? Major national media in the US will completely ignore it.

Thinking Americans have become enured to their major national media ignoring or belittling stories that damn the Bushites. A little criticism is OK but when someone credible comes along, even someone the media once eagerly pursued for their opinion, and makes an accusation as serious as this it can be considered as sure as sunrise that it will be ignored.

Our national media has been slow in catching on to the new paradigm but they're catching up fast.
