To the Toimes. Excerpt:
I have heard that you have hired the utterly discredited neo-conservative William Kristol to write a weekly column. I am aghast at this decision: Mr. Kristol was one of the loudest voices agitating for war in Iraq, and at every turn he has been proven wrong. He was wrong about the weapons of mass destruction; he was wrong that our troops would be met as liberators; he was wrong about the cost of the war; he was wrong about the length of the war; he was wrong about Iraqâ€™s stability; and he was wrong about Saddam Husseinâ€™s ties to September 11. Thousands of American soldiers are dead and wounded because of Kristolâ€™s errors, and thousands more maimed and psychotic. Why would you hire someone with this record? Wasnâ€™t one Judy Miller enough?
