The cost of war: Finally an accounting

My wife has been telling me for a couple of days about the new book by Nobel winning economist, Joseph Stiglitz, about the longterm cost of the Iraq war, a congressional hearing about this, and an interview with him on NPR. Today, columnist Bob Herbert visits this at the New York Times and demands to know why the media -- and the Democratic candidates -- have paid so little attention to this. Check out his column at:

Also, great piece on this subject today by the terrific Bill Hartung over at TomDispatch:
