THE OTHER DAY I linked to a column by Tim Chavez in the Nashville Tennessean calling attention to unreported successes in Iraq. Various letter-writers over at Romenesko disagree. (The absence of permalinks means you'll have to scroll). Excerpt: "I can tell you firsthand that the report Tim Chavez supposedly received from a Marine lieutenant colonel claiming that 'HUNDREDS of dead women and children were brought out after Sadr left' the shrine of Imam Ali is entirely false."
UPDATE: Chavez responds here. Read the whole thing.
