Should The Washington Post Fire William Arkin?

Thursday, February 1, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The Washington Post’s William Arkin has penned two poisonous columns revealing his contempt for the American military.  (Column 1 here and column 2 here.)  That he is an old leftist with long ties to the radical Washington think tank scene is well documented, but his blatant anti-military sneering has never been on full display before.Among the many slanders of column 1, Arkin branded American troops as “mercenaries,” and in column 2 pretended to apologize before launching into more sneers.

Stephen Spruell has some updates and key links.

The Post now faces a business decision:  Does it continue to employ as its “national security and homeland security “expert a military-hater with zero credibility, or does it give him the boot?
