And this is just one more slap in the face of our military from the favorite paper of jihadists everywhere:
October 13, 2007 — Every major daily paper in New York took note of President Bush’s decision to bestow the first Medal of Honor of Operation Enduring Freedom on Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy – a Long Islander who gave his life for his country and his fellow SEALs.
Every paper but one, that is.
And it shouldn’t be particularly hard to guess which one.
No. It’s not hard to guess at all.
Indeed, it would be hard to cite a news outlet more responsible for sapping U.S. morale – and emboldening America’s enemies – than the Times.
But Murphy was a New Yorker.
He served with unusual valor and distinction in Afghanistan.
The writer of this article from the New York Post assumes that anybody working at the al Qaeda Times of New York™ has any idea what the word valor means…
We figure if Lt. Michael Murphy was alleged by John Murtha to have gunned down innocent civilians, the New York Times would have noted the story; in all likelihood, on page one.
But the fact a local hero was bestowed with the Medal of Honor doesn’t even merit a mention in the alleged paper of record is disgraceful.
Sad, but true.
