True, but it appears in the LA Times. I don’t know what kind of contract this writer has with them, but I’m assuming they didn’t HAVE to publish it, did they? Besides, it’s good that their subscribers are hearing this - probably for the first time ever. So, while this particular writer does work for a Conservative source, this appearing in the LA Times, is still quite amazing, IMHO.
When did the New Republic become a Conservative source? Who were the Republicans that signed off on the senate report?
The New Republic is classified as liberal, or, on some issues (such as support for the initial invasion of Iraq), as "center left." It definitely can't be classified as conservative.
