Wilmington News Journal editorial on the Israelis announcing new settlements in eastern Jerusalem, titled "Upstaging Biden was more than just diplomatic gaffe":
Later a leading newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, reported Mr. Biden privately told officials actions like that were putting American lives in danger in Iraq and Afghanistan. It's no longer just a gaffe.
Oh, is that so, News Journal?
Where were your enlightened selves (and you too, Mr. Biden) when people like Dick Durbin, Harry Reid, John Murtha, John Kerry and myriad other Democrat politicians were clamoring that our efforts in Iraq (and elsewhere) were "Nazi-like," that the war "was lost," that US troops killed "innocent civilians in cold blood," and that our soliders were going into Iraqis' homes "in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children," hmm?? Oh, but when the Jooooos do something, "it's no longer just a gaffe."
Semi-related: Former Executive Editor of the NY Times Howell Raines bitches and moans about how Fox News is so "unjournalistic" and "outright biased." Or, to translate for Raines, "I'm pissed off that the self-righteous Left doesn't have a monopoly on presenting the news anymore."
UPDATE (March 15 at 9:04pm): The blog In Context gives us a geography lesson on "East Jerusalem." Would that we all heed it.
