More Biased Stupidity

Or is that Stupid Bias?

You may have heard about an asinine Newsweek (yep, you know, those Old Legacy Media types) piece suggesting the Pentagon wants to use "death squads" in Iraq.

David Asman dissects the stupidity and asks where is the apology to those putting their lives on the line yesterday and today.

Newsweek magazine ran a bizarre story this week, in which it claimed that U.S. Special Forces were training Iraqi commandos to be murderers. . . .

The clear implication was that U.S. Special Forces units trained Salvadorans to murder innocents in the 1980s and that now our Special Forces are training murder squads in Iraq. This is not only wrong, it’s the exact opposite of what happened. Our Special Forces were sent to El Salvador in the 1980s to stop random killings, which were out of control on both sides of the conflict. . . .

If Newsweek editors honored those units, they would issue an apology to those who worked and died in Central America in the 1980s and to those who are working so hard now in Iraq. But don’t hold your breath.

I won't.
