Scared Children

Christopher Allbritton of Back to Iraq responds to those asking him to please report the "real truth" about all the great things going on in Iraq:

In the context of all this, reporting on a half-assed refurbished school or two seems a bit childish and naive, the equivalent of telling a happy story to comfort a scared child.
The inability of Americans to manage their fear, and the ability of the Bush administration to manipulate that fear, is what got us all here. There were other ways to respond to 9-11. Bush thinks we're all children, and he's reading My Pet Goat to us while World War Three gets underway.

As Robert Frost said, "The people I am most scared of are the people who are scared."
