    N.Y. Times Retaliates Against Cheney, Rumsfeld


    Beware of travel feature stories posing as invitations to terror.

    "The New York Times points cranks, radicals, al-Qaida operatives and would-be assassins to the summer homes of [V.P. Dick] Cheney and [Defense Secretary Donald] Rumsfeld" writes FrontPage Magazine's David Horowitz, who sees the June 30 Times feature article as an apparent retaliation for administration "criticism of the Times' disclosure of classified intelligence to America's enemies."

    In the "Escapes" section of the June 30 edition, the N.Y. Times printed huge color photos of the vacation residences of Cheney and Rumsfeld, "identifying the small Maryland town where they live, showing their front driveways and, in Rumsfeld's case, actually pointing out the hidden security camera in case any hostile intruders should get careless," Horowitz writes.

    Times Travel section writer Peter Kilborn even makes sure enemies of the two men will know such details as where Mrs. Rumsfeld shops in the eastern shore town of St. Michaels, Md. where the two administration officials have weekend retreats.

    He even lets the curious know what street the Cheneys and Rumsfelds have to use to get to their own road.

    It's all part of the war against President Bush, Horowitz charges.

    "Make no mistake about it, there is a war going on in this country," Horowitz advises, noting that the aggressors in this war "are Democrats, liberals and leftists who began a scorched earth campaign against President Bush before the initiation of hostilities in Iraq."

    One of the most prevalent weapons in this war, according to Horowitz, is the New York Times.

    Rumsfeld lives in St. Michael's? I was born there. How interesting...

    Sounds more to me like Horowitz is one of the admin's weapons against the Times.

    You think this article is different from the ones they've done on the Kennedy family compound or the summer homes of anyone else who's rich and/or powerful?

    And you think this article is any different from the ones the Times has written about the Kennedy Family Compound or any other politico's place?

    Try reading the article for yourselves and stop letting the propagandists tell you what you should *think* you're reading.
