An Open Letter To Our Friends in the National Media (re Abu Ghraib)
To all of you pundits who are now suddenly finding yourselves disgusted by what we have wrought in Iraq and wondering where we went wrong:

You cannot have a war without atrocities. War IS an atrocity. If you don't like atrocities, DON'T START A FUCKING WAR.

Sincerely,

The Plaid Adder
