From Robert Parry at Consortium News NYT on Iraq: Better Late Than Never? In an extraordinary full-length editorial, the New York Times has called for an end to the U.S. military occupation of Iraq, a step that some anti-war Americans may praise as a turning-point while others will be left wondering why it took the nation’s leading newspaper more than four years – and scores of thousands of dead – to figure this out.

Perhaps it is time that before we accept the coming of a war, we demand facts - we demand time to sort through them - and we do not give anyone too much power. That is why our system is designed with Checks and Balances. When it comes to seeing that they are enforced, and protected, we are the Deciders.
