Where’s the Retraction, TNR?

Confederate Yankee. notes today : [1]

Just how long does it take to pen a retraction?

I only ask because it’s been roughly a month since The New Republic had their first solid chance to interview Scott Thomas Beauchamp since he returned from duty at COP Ellis.

Since then, he’s been online–hence, available–at least several days every week, including today. Beauchamp even had time to talk with Laughing Wolf from Blackfive [2] as recently as September 30. Why not TNR?

Is Scott not talking to Franklin Foer, or is Franklin Foer simply unwilling to print what Scott has to say?

Personally, my take is is that Foer doesn’t have the integrity that God gave jello.  He’s just hoping that if he doesn’t say anything about the whole thing, and it is going to go away.

To put more of a bite on this, I expect a retraction of Foer and TNR about the time we’ll see an apology from that unspeakable slime ball Jack Murtha publicly issued to the soldiers he slandered.  Or, Jesse McBeth.  Rather/Mapes. Plame/Wilson, etc. Moveon/Petraeus.

Gee.  We’re beginning to see a trend, aren’t we?
