Good lord what a self-serving twit Franklin Foer is. After destroying his magazine's rep by failing to note what was obvious to anyone with a clue about the military, he now trots out a War & Peace length apologia for his own prejudices, naivete and incompetence. WOW!
Seriously TNR you have to fire this guy, if he stands as your layer of fact-checking and professionalism you are already done. You gave him the chance to make his case and he shot himself right in both feet. Uh buh bye Frank.
As he has all along Bob Owens has the full, journalistically serious, fact-checked story at my corporate masters.
