Greg Pollowitz at NRO’s terrific Media Blog caught this:
If the editors truly believe this, then Afghanistan was lost in 2002 — when Bush started making his case to the international community to take action against Iraq if they did not comply with U.N. weapons investigators. According to the Times, then, it’s been ten years since there was “ever a serious chance of building a stable and prosperous Afghanistan.”
And if that’s the case, they should have been tougher on President Obama over the last four years to get the troops out.
As I wrote here, even at the risk of looking thoroughly ridiculous, as the NYT does here, the media can never-ever-ever allow Obama to fail.
