    ever paints the entire picture. There are always angles and sides that are left out or incomplete.

    This story doesn't pretend to tell the whole story of the Iraq war. It tells the tragic story of one soldier and the ripple effect of that tragedy in the lives of those around him.

    The New York Times has written plenty about the tragic deaths and destruction inflicted upon ordinary Iraqis. That doesn't mean that those stories are invalid because they didn't explore the motivations of the pilot whose plane dropped the bomb on their house.

    By the standard you suggest, no story about the war would ever be published.

    What, no fucking ziti?

      by my standard, most stories about the war would be incomplete and potentially manipulative.  The NYT will have to print in red for 100 years to purge all the blood from their hands for this occupation. And that would just cover Bloody Judy Miller's contribution.

        Are you saying that because Judy Miller swallowed a neo-con line of BS hook, line and sinker, that means that this story about this soldier written by a reporter whose name is not Judy Miller is to be dismissed as war-nography?

        Slam Judy Miller all you want. She has it coming. Slam the editors who let her run amok. What does that have to do with this story or with other stories from Iraq by other reporters?

        What, no fucking ziti?
