National Public Radio continued its slide into uselessness this evening with an analysis of President Bush’s “strategy” speech today on “All Things Considered.”
Joining host Robert Siegel in the analysis was the Weekly Standard‘s Reuel Marc Gerecht, who some of you may remember from last summer on Meet the Press when he said “women’s social rights are not critical to the evolution of democracy.”
There to “balance” the discussion was George Packer of the New Yorker, who — while critical of the administration’s execution of the war — has been a proponent of the invasion of Iraq from before the beginning.
That’s the limits of the realistic debate about war strategy for NPR. Two guys who both support the war talking about whether staying the course is the way to go. Basically, they agreed that it was. Big surprise.
