NY Times living up to the “Enemedia” label

According to Brad Thor at BigGovernment.com

I have just received word that the New York Times is preparing to go public with a list of names of Americans covertly working in Afghanistan providing force protection for our troops, as well as the rest of our Coalition Forces. If the Times actually sees this through, the red ink they are drowning in will be nothing compared to the blood their entire organization will be covered with. Make no mistake, the Times is about to cause casualty rates in Afghanistan to skyrocket. Each and every American should be outraged.

Go read the rest and then let the Times know you don’t take kindly to treason. Email addresses to use:

Enemedia boosts terrorists’ morale

Don’t you just feel like saying “well, duh!” As if none of knew this before — but hey, I’m really glad that someone did a study that proved us right.

Are insurgents affected by information on US casualty sensitivity? Using data on attacks and variation in access to international news across Iraqi provinces, we identify an “emboldenment” effect by comparing the rate of insurgent attacks in areas with higher and lower access to information about U.S news after public statements critical of the war. We find in periods after a spike in war-critical statements, insurgent attacks increases by 5-10 percent. The results suggest that insurgent groups respond rationally to expected probability of US withdrawal. As such counterinsurgency should consider deterrence and incapacitation rather than simply search and destroy missions.

Seen on FoxNews and Free Republic. Awaiting the response of the navel gazing enemedia…. *crickets*
