The New Republic is too old an institution to recklessly advocate for the wrong side of history. It will be interesting to watch certain liberal organs (news anchors and several magazines such as Newsweek and Time) flail about once the true nature of Hussein's regime is exposed to the light of day.
It may not be the equivalent of the liberation of the concentration camps, but the severity of his oppression will be revealed as a repugnant chapter in modern history. The appeasers will attempt to "blend" in with those of us who have seen the situation in realistic terms. Hopefully, entities such as Free Republic will not allow them to get away with it.

Just as importantly, they seem to know it. The current people in place are but the custodians of a reputation that took a long time to build, and that will have value long after they are gone.
I do not understand why the owners of the just-as-venerable New York Times have chosen to trade their institution's incredible reputation and power for a few ineffectual spears thrown at one Republican President. Such short-term thinking boggles the mind.
