And While We’re on the Subject of Reuters…

By Jeffrey Goldberg

Mar 24 2011, 11:53 AM ET

This is from a just-released Reuters news analysis of President Obama’s alleged travails:

Obama is committed to partnering with other countries rather than going it alone as did his predecessor George W. Bush, which both broadens and complicates the decision-making process. 

This, of course, is wildly inaccurate and misleading. Say what you will about the second Iraq war, but George W. Bush made partnerships with many nations in advance of the invasion, including and especially America’s most valuable ally, Great Britain, as well as Australia, Spain, Hungary, Poland, Denmark, South Korea, the Czech Republic, and a couple of dozen others. Reuters should correct this inaccurate statement.

The lesson learned here… Research before you post.
