We now have empirical evidence of how long it takes the NYT to catch up to the facts. Last May 23, my Loose Canons column presented the ugly fact that Syria is, and has been since 2003, a sanctuary for terrorists killing Americans, coalition troops and Iraqis inside Iraq. The column called for covert and overt strikes into Syria to take out the terrorists in the places we knew them to be. Today, the NYT reports that, “Increasingly, officials say, Syria is to the Iraq war what Cambodia was in the Vietnam war: a sanctuary for fighters, money and supplies to flow over the border and, ultimately, a place for a shadow struggle. Five months lag time for the MSM? Not bad, all things considered.
