Looking at America - New York Times Slaps the Snot Out of Bush and His Loyalists

There are too many moments these days when we cannot recognize our country. Sunday was one of them, as we read the account in The Times of how men in some of the most trusted posts in the nation plotted to cover up the torture of prisoners by Central Intelligence Agency interrogators by destroying videotapes of their sickening behavior. It was impossible to see the founding principles of the greatest democracy in the contempt these men and their bosses showed for the Constitution, the rule of law and human decency.
Rarely if ever any more does a newspaper come out and slap Bush senseless like the Times did here. But they just hired William Kristol so maybe they're being "balanced?"
