A Somber Acknowledgement

More grief every day from Iraq. This time the son of a critic of the Iraq War, and occasional guest on NPR news, Andrew Bacevich.- was killed a few days ago in Iraq. NPR reports that he was Prof. Bacevich's only son and was 27 years old. How many more?

Credit goes NPR this evening for playing an excerpt from an interview they recently conducted with Bacevich in which he said of the war in Iraq: "...an unnecessary and misguided war has ended in failure and we’re only now trying to figure out what that ending is going to look like."

"An unnecessary and misguided war has ended in failure...." A far too rare moment on NPR.

I was especially sad to hear that the family received word of his death on Mother's Day.
