Read Knight-Ridder

If only a bigger news organization would, you know, hire these guys we wouldn't have all these problems in the USA. As I say, thanks to the internets hopefully their many, many excellent stories on national security will get more widely read in the future.

Comments

I suspect that if a bigger news organization hired them we wouldn't be getting the excellent stories from them anymore. They've made some interesting remarks lately about how not always having access to the top political appointees has forced them to be more creative, which has led them to interview more people who have been actual participants in, or eyewitnesses of, various newsworthy events.

What Abigail said.

No matter who wins Tuesday (and beyond), I think we are likely to see some big-name news org.s hire away members of the KR team. (If Kerry wins, the motivation is to curry favor with the new admin; if Bush wins, the motivation is to ride the anti-PNAC wave of disgruntlement on Iraq).

And as Abigail implied, the institutional biases of the "big players" will coopt the investigative skills of the KR guys.

The problem with your contention and reasoning that we did not have Americans with the native Afghan forces is that it is not true – Gen. Franks has made that clear in this NY times Op-Ed – http://www.nytimes.com/2004/10/19/opinion/19franks.html?ex=1255924800&en=dfe849b12233309f&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland

Another problem is at the time of Tora Bora Kerry is on record as saying that how we did was in every way the right way and that it saved American lives.

“Well, I think it depends on where you are tactically. They may well be doing that at some point in time. But for the moment, what we are doing, I think, is having its impact and it is the best way to protect our troops and sort of minimalize the proximity, if you will. I think we have been doing this pretty effectively and we should continue to do it that way.”

In other words Kerry was for Tora Bora before he was against it.

Nice of you to quote Kerry out of context there.

CALLER: Hello. Yes, I would like to ask the panel why they don't use napalm or flamethrowers on those tunnels and caves up there in Afghanistan?
KING: Senator Kerry?
CALLER: My golly, I think they could smoke him out.
KING: Senator Kerry?
KERRY: Well, I think it depends on where you are tactically. They may well be doing that at some point in time. But for the moment, what we are doing, I think, is having its impact and it is the best way to protect our troops and sort of minimalize the proximity, if you will. I think we have been doing this pretty effectively and we should continue to do it that way.

Kerry's 'what we are doing' refers as a contrast to the proposal that napalm and flamethrowers be used; it's about the type of warfare, not the personnel.

A-plus on kudos for KR folks, some of the best reporting on the war and the intelligence war ... period.

There aren't too many news orgs bigger than KR.
