The Bee printed an article by journalist James Rosen on page A12 of its January 5 print edition titled "Ex-officers air doubts on Gonzales." The entire article details how approximately 12 ex-Pentagon types "challenged" the nomination of Alberto Gonzales to the top spot of U.S. Attorney General. There is not a single word in the article regarding whether Gonzales has the support of any ex-Pentagon personnel. Considering the harsh words some of these "ex- officers" have for Gonzales' interpretation of the "Geneva Conventions and other international legal protections for war prisoners," some clue as to the ex-officers' understandings of international law would be helpful for the reader to gauge the merit of their arguments. A clear failure of balanced reporting Mr. Rosen.
