Frankly Ridiculous

In today's AmSpec column you'll find my take on New Republic editor Frank Foer's reluctant, self-pitying, Army-smearing retraction of the Baghdad Diarist articles.

TNR has allowed non-subscribers to comment on Foer's piece, which has resulted in over 500 replies, most of them highly critical. The regulars are apalled by this and are alternately claiming that the Beauchamp stories are true (or have the "essence of truth" i.e., fake but accurate) and that anyone who wrote in to criticize TNR is obviously a rightwing plant acting on orders from Rush Limbaugh. As debate goes, it's pretty puerile, but as entertainment, it's a goldmine.
