Dear New York Times: Fuck YouOn their homepage, the tagline to this story is as follows: "Senior U.S. military officials presented their first public evidence for the assertion that Iran is supplying Shiite extremists in Iraq with lethal weapons." It's a triumph of non-critical parroting of government claims. Clearly, they have gone through the requisite self-examination and learned the crucial lessons of the lead-up to what future historians will call "The Fucking Iraq Clusterfuck."
I especially like that they specify that we're talking about lethal weapons here. Otherwise, I'd have assumed we were talking about your typical Nerf Bow and Arrow.
