Scanlyze response to ‘Army Suspends two NYT journalists’ on ‘Conservative Thoughts’

Conservative Thoughts has a bit on two journalists associated with the New York Times who have been “suspended” by the US Army for their reporting from Iraq:

Army Suspends two NYT journalists

My response to CT:

So the New York Times shouldn’t post any picture or video of someone dying? Only happy news, then?

Or is the issue that they showed an American soldier dying?

This war, which has cost the lives of thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, is supposed to be covered without ever showing anyone dying?

This family should be a LOT more angry with George W. Bush and the US Congress who wrongfully sent their son to be killed in an illegal aggressive war on the basis of lies, lies, propaganda, and more lies. Waging an aggressive war was one of the four main categories of charges at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II for which the Nazi leaders were imprisoned, or in most cases, executed.
