#1 It is one thing to surrender to an armed enemy of the US.

But I believe it is another entirely to actively undermine the efforts of our military and intel organizations to prosecute this war in the way it needs to be prosecuted. WaPo fits this paradigm neatly with room to grow.

#2 AH, but the WaPo DID have the 'courage' to print this daring op-ed piece.

#3 The WaPo is left of center and no friend of the administration, but compared to the NYT and LAT it usually operates under adult supervision. If you're gonna dog 'em when they get it wrong, it's only fair to give 'em a pat on the back when they get it right.
