The military is accountable to no one.

Michelle Malkin puts forward the ridiculous argument that the New York Times should not have published a classified military slide that tells us that our people on the ground believe that the situation is getting worse in Iraq. Wha?

Malkin sees treason.

I see the media doing it's job for once. Malkin needs to understand that this war is being waged in the name of every American. That means we have the right to know whether or not it's going well. She whines about "blabbermouths," but I'm happy to have some information that can be used to hold the people responsible for this war to account.

As Malkin would have it, we're not entitled to real information. We're at war, she says, and I guess that means we just have to trust our leaders to tell us what we need to know, when we need to know it. Heck, it's not like they'd have any interest in keeping bad news classified while releasing favorable news, is there? I can't think of any...
