They Know Not of What They Speak

Michael Ledeen at National Review Online, and RWS at RWS, don't take too kindly to the Washington Post's behavior on Memorial Day:

Anybody else notice that the Washington Post today has not a single tribute to a fallen warrior? And the closest thing on the front page is the story of a guy whose wife died of breast cancer and he created a web memorial to her.
No, they don't have a single tribute. Not just one to be found.

Instead, they have an entire section of their website dedicated to every service member known killed in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.

Oh, those America-hating lefties!

This is the point where I suspect some of my fellow war supporters will chime in with "Yeah, but they're just doing that to undermine the war!" So, quite simply, damned if they do and damned if they don't.

If you approve of sending people off to fight a war for you, you better be damned willing to look at each and every face of the fallen, and not just on Memorial Day.

Update: Over at RWS, a commenter said that "Faces of the Fallen" doesn't count as tribute. In which case, I suppose, the Vietnam Memorial is "just a bunch of names on a wall."
