More than a dozen posts at TNR’s The Plank today, and still no one from among that band of truth-tellers has stepped forward to declare their distance –however slight– from this mountain of lies.
Dean’s Dead Pool goes on, but I ask a question in addition to Foer’s exit date: What explanations, if any, will TNR’s staffers and contributing editors offer post-capitulation? Loyalty to Foer over loyalty to the truth? They were following orders? The reputation of the troops just doesn’t matter much to them?
UPDATE: Powerline’s Scott Johnson looks beyond the Beauchamp fable to the Judis article and reports on “What War Did To The New Republic.”
