-- An Oct. 30 column by Chuck Muth attacks Bush from the far right regarding the Bush administration's failures in the war on terror: Muth believes it's "pussy-footing around and waging a politically correct 'sensitive' war." What should Bush have done instead? Rescind the executive order that bans assassinations of foreign leaders, not federalize baggage screeners, "and The Air Force and the Navy's rockets red glare should have lit up Baghdad in October, not March."
-- An Oct. 30 article by Nathan Burchfiel is the fifth CNS "news" article referencing Jim Webb's fiction. As before, no attempt is made to put Webb's offending passages in the context of the story from which CNS (and the George Allen campaign) plucked them.
