"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Abu Ghraib - New book on women in the military - a though

Saw a split second of a morning news program Sunday morning. NBC had the author of a new book regarding women in the military. I honestly don't know anything beyond that, but what caught my eye was the images from Abu Ghraib; which is what stopped me in my channel surfing tracks.

Why does the media play these shots so often? Why don't they go away like the 9/11 images have? Why does the media use one standard for the U.S. and another for the Islamofascists? Or a different standard with regard to the cartoons of the InkQuisition?
