Soldiers turned Murderers thanks to the NYT

Yesterday I had the occassion to look at the front page article of the New York Times discussing the number of American soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and becoming murderers. The front page was taken up by photos of the veterans involved and a large full scale article later on in the paper. By the end of the article, you could be convinced (not me) that serving in a theatre of war would automatically turn a respectable, honorable soldier into a cold-blooded murderer. Today I came across a short piece re-examining the numbers - an excellent read. If you haven't already - please stop your subscription to the New York Times. They are involved in libel against our troops, home and abroad.
