Bill & Mary Schurman: Cronkite right on again

Oh no! Now what? Mr. Middle America says that we should pull out of Iraq — now. What will W. and his ilk do to dis Walter as they have done with anyone else who has dared to belittle W. and his war? Maybe they will say that he is just too old to know any better. Well, he was right on with Vietnam and he is right on again. Iraq is a never-ending quagmire that will continue to see our troops die for a country that surely will end up in civil war. What will W. (or his writers) say then?

Editor’s note: In 1968, renowned journalist Walter Cronkite in an on-air editorial urged the United States to leave Vietnam. On Sunday, Cronkite said he would do the same today about Iraq if he were still an anchor at CBS News.
