Not that it would change anyone’s mind about Iraq, but Joe Lieberman’s column in the WSJ titled “Our Troops Must Stay” is a pretty definitive piece. Of course, this Democrat forcefully supporting the president’s Iraq policy doesn’t receive the same coverage that this Democrat recently received when he called for troops to be removed. Why is that?
Because the current media frame is that American support for troops in Iraq is eroding more every day. Sen. Leiberman’s comments don’t fit this frame; Rep. John Murtha’s comments do.
