'N.Y. Times' Editorial: Leave Iraq Now

By Greg Mitchell

Published: July 07, 2007 10:20 PM ET


NEW YORK At a critical moment, with Republicans in Congress starting to abandon President Bush on Iraq, The New York Times for its Sunday edition has published what may one day be viewed as a historic editorial.

It is titled, "The Road Home," and opens: "It is time for the United States to leave Iraq, without any more delay than the Pentagon needs to organize an orderly exit."

As long chronicled by E&P, very few newspapers in the U.S. have endorsed a withdrawal from Iraq or even a timetable for that, despite the overwhelming shift in public opinion on that question. Momentum has started to shift in that direction, however, with a handful of papers -- from the Los Angeles Times to, just this week, The Olympian in Washington -- backing a pullout.
