General William C. Westmoreland, USA (ret.) threw in the towel yesterday at age 91. He had a long and distinguished career and is best remembered for his service as commander of American forces in Vietnam. NRO wrote a good piece on his libel suit against against CBS for claiming he conspired to cook the casualty numbers during that war. Read it.

The NRO story brings to mind so many scams the MSM has run over the years, ranging from the Westmoreland hit piece, to the CNN story that we used nerve gas on American POWs collaborating with the NVA, to the NBC story on exploding gas tanks, Rathergate, Korangate, etc. And they wonder why their influence, readership, and viewers is on a long slide.
