The Post noted that "the critical question facing voters in November, as opposed to party leaders now, is who would make the better senator -- which is why we welcome Mr. Lieberman's decision to remain in the race. He would be, by far, the better choice for the people of Connecticut." It even asserted that Lieberman had been making "sharp criticism" of the president on the war for years -- likely a surprise to most Democratic voters in the state.
Just as the Post editorial page was endorsing the pro-war candidate in Connecticut, the paper's front page carried a report that painted the war in the worst possible light. It opened, "The war in Iraq has become the primary recruitment vehicle for violent Islamic extremists, motivating a new generation of potential terrorists around the world whose numbers are increasing faster than the United States and its allies are eliminating the threat, U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded.
Problem is, I'm not finding it (yet) on the WaPo's opinion page. UPDATE: A number of folks in the comments found the editorial--dated August 10th. Why E&P is running this story now confounds me. It was posted late last night. Perhaps a glitch in the automation system? Mea culpa, folks.
