The Headline for this article in the NYT is "Issue for Bush: How to Speak of Casualties?"
But it really ought to be: "Issue for Bush: Speak of the Casualties!"
As Commander-in-Chief aWol (who would ever put those two terms side-by-side without such supreme irony?) has a duty to help the families of the dead and wounded AND the larger, American family get through their grief and anger. He has a duty to fully and truthfully explain to all of us why our young soldiers are dying.
Enough of the spinning and redacting and the outright lying, goddammit! Tell us the truth! NOW!
