Win, Place, and Show

Dan Cohen wrote a letter to the Star Tribune in response to this editorial.

Time magazine reports as follows: "Exclusive: U.S. picked up the suspects' chatter and shared it with British authorities..."

While readers of this page are well aware of your eagerness to avoid giving any credit whatsoever to the Bush administration for anything that goes right in the war against terror, sometimes it pays to wait a day or two before sticking it to the Bushies. Hence, your piece on the latest terrorist plot , which failed to mention the role that we played in foiling it, (oh, pardon me, you do state that it involved good police work in Britain and "elsewhere") paints a false picture of how the incident was uncovered, and calls into question the credibility of your editorial opinions.
