Memory hole. Why has this editorial in the Army Times—previously available here—vanished from their web site? [12:36 AM]

what i really want to know is who wrote it. i'd love to give them proper credit. or at least one big-ass hug.

and for posterity's sake, i've created a PDF out of the page that my friend was able to create.

Send this to various liberal sites - Maxspeak, counterpunch, talking points (Josh Marshall).

Let them know.

What's sort of funny is that Army Times still has a link up, to a blank block of space. If they knew what they're doing, they'd have substituted something else.

I just forwarded the link to the Army Times feedback page. I wonder what they'll say? This incident is unique for me, in that I remember reading the article (it was mentioned, and I was surprised). Usually when somebody mentions a yanked article, I never saw it, and so am taking other people's word for it.

In this case, I know that it was pulled.

Wouldn't it be delicious if the 2004 presidential election came to be decided by a judge's decision on a GOP-led effort to block a bunch of late absentee ballots . . . from Iraq?

Just wanted to let you guys know there was nothing sinister going on here. Kent Miller, from the Army Times, explains it all for you here..

that makes me feel a little better, but i didn't realize they posted week(s) ahead with websites the way most print magazines do.

maybe i should get out more :)

It's back. And the Army Times addresses issues regarding the readers in a serious way. To them, he's a politician, not the C-in-C. And Congress is nowhere in the chain of command, so the Times can complain all they want to.
