ledeen.jpg You'd have thought MoveOn sold a copy of "how to make a nuclear bomb in two simple steps" to undesirables the way the media has treated them, but when the "Kristol Conservative"---Michael Ledeen attacks Gen. Abizaid on the pages of the NRO because he had the audacity to say that we could live with a nuclear Iran because we survived the Soviet Union and...he topped it off by saying that war with Iran would be devastating to everybody but that's just fine by the media...

Digby has the details....

This is why the pearl clutching among the right wingers and their media allies is so laughable. On the right, they treat all Generals and troops who disagree with them like garbage, in the most despicable terms possible. Look what they did to John Kerry. Why any DC liberal takes their little "patriotic" game seriously is beyond me.

Can you help us out?
