New York Times Hires PNAC Warmonger Kristol

"The final straw for me, however, was the December 30,

2007 decision by the Times to hire William Kristol (editor
of the Weekly Standard) as a columnist. Although the
calls Kristol a conservative, he is, in fact, a notorious
neoconservative - a member of a political cult that many
traditional conservatives disavow. Readers who noticed this
Orwellian elision by the Times might also recall that in
January 1998, Kristol (and Robert Kagan) wrote an
Op Ed titled, "Bombing Iraq isn't Enough," which the
Times was reckless enough to publish.

Reckless? Yes, because, as Robert Parry has observed: "Under
principles of international law applied from Nuremberg to
propagandists who contribute to war crimes or
encourage crimes
against humanity can be put in the dock
alongside the actual
killers." [Consortium News, Posted August
21, 2006] Simply recall that, under international law, the
unprovoked invasion of another sovereign state is considered
the most egregious of war crimes."
