Now Ramesh has added: "That's what I'm hearing." I've never known this guy to make stuff up, so this looks promising.

I'm going over to Hugh Hewitt, bet he's going nuts.

Hugh Hewitt's broadcasting live from the Twin Cities today.

I'm tuned in listening for him to mention this as he was really on Jordan's case.

SWEET!

It used to be said that you didn't get into arguments with people who bought ink by the barrel, but the Blog is turning into a great equalizer.
Now these guys with ink by the barrel better start being accurate..or they will just drown in their own ink..

I don't need no stinkin' confirmation!

Seriously, I don't know. But I'd imagine that a serious NRO writer wouldn't post something he didn't have some degree of confidence in.

If the U.S. military really set out to "target" journalists in Iraq, there wouldn't be any friggin' journalists in that country.
