And he does it with insight — placing the primary blame not on McClellan, but on Bush’s domineering teasing and valuing loyalty above all else. Read it all — it rings true.

My latest piece for Pajamas Media is up today. In it I discuss the strained relations between the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Times. I was happy to report that, unlike last year, the Times deigned to give some coverage to the LAPD’s Medal of Valor Awards ceremony which was held on Wednesday. But read the piece for a look at how important they thought the story was.
I also note in the column that only six of the 21 officers recognized for bravery were identified in the Times story. If those same 21 officers had instead been accused of corruption or brutality, don’t you think the Times would have found room in their newspaper for all their names?
