Back At The Wheel

I'm back after spending a mostly beautiful weekend in Boston...the only catch being that I was inside attending a conference. Fortunately the meeting was great.

While I was gone I got an email from Evan Maloney (keeper of Brain-Terminal). He had written an article on the Media's treatment of Abu Ghraib prisoner pictures and the Nick Berg video. Apparently he got so many requests for the URL he finally linked to Wizbang. Here is his closing paragraph, which I think is right on and contains the sentiment that has been echoing around the US and the world ever since the video was released.

For us to achieve a just victory, it is important to hold ourselves to a higher morality. And when we fall short, the rest of the world should see that we can confront our own mistakes. If airing the Abu Ghraib prison pictures helps us do that, all the better. But we must not let terrorists take it as a sign that we don't have the stomach for war. That's why it's important to show the rest of the world that we're not afraid to kick some ass. And if seeing the gruesome images of Nick Berg's beheading gives us the mettle required to win this war, then he will not have died in vain.

Read the whole thing and check out his site. Agree with him or don't, but you've got to give him credit for the quality of both his written work and video productions.
