Thanks, Ms. Phillips


Melanie Phillips is a brilliant British journalist, whose name will be familiar to many of our readers. In her online diary today, she takes approving note of Herbert E. Meyer's Open Letter, published here yeserday.

Another tremendous —— and utterly salutary —— article by Herb Meyer, a former Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence during the Reagan administration and Vice Chairman of the CIA's National Intelligence Council, provides a sobering and urgent warning that we are at a possibly lethal tipping point in Iraq and the wider defence against terror. Meyer warns that this war may be about to be lost —— at home and abroad

We have always known that Herb has brilliant original insights in many fields, but it is good to see that some of the best journalists in the world concur.
