U.S. Displays Bomb Parts Said to Be Made in Iran

For the second day in a row, the NYT quotes this guy:
[...] Maj. Marty Weber, a master explosives ordnance technician [...]

I'm not questioning Maj. Weber's qualifications.

But I find it very odd that the NYT is not mentioning that Maj. Weber is an aide to the head flack for the U.S. military in Iraq. He is on the PR team.

Shouldn't the NYT, to fully report this story, point out that this whole "look! Iran!" effort is a big PR push? And hey, how about asking some questions about where the PR push is coming from? Pentagon, White House? Cheney?

Or are we all supposed to slip into that 2003 mindset of "war is inevitable, only dirty hippies don't like war." Man. You know what, those hippies are dirty. Forget I said anything. Bombs away.
