still relying on hawks and unnamed sources for much of news coverage, and guest punditry, on Iraq, even today. This almost got us into Syria a year ago.

is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
