My recent letter to the NY Times:
> > >
The article "Britain Nears Announcement on Iraq Troops" (NY Times International Section, AP, 10/21) evidences a huge problem with the NY Times' coverage of the Bush administration's handling of Iraq, especially in light of the upcoming Presidential election. Did you not think it relevant enough to assign your own writer to this story?

Don't ignore Britain, our prime ally, and what Britain tells us about Bush. The attitudes voiced by our closest allies, the British, are quite telling of the quality of Bush's leadership as commander-in-chief.

The Times has STILL not published any of the highly condemning Monday statements by members of the British Parliament regarding further troop commitments in a war they view as an American debacle.

At least publish the URL at which these statements are available. The American people should be aware of how poorly the British view the Bush administration's conduct of the Iraq war.
