Weekly Standard vs New Republic

The irony that The Weekly Standard, of all the publications on the planet, is making claims in judgment of the editorial integrity of any other publication, with the possible exception of the Weekly World News [RIP], is pretty rich. The second and third points of the Standard’s defense are pure smokescreen; and, the first point makes the explicit assumption that the result of an internal investigation of incidents with significant public relations implications for the body performing that investigation are dispositive. All three points lean on the dignity of the Army to shore up a weak argument.
