New York Times Admits To Lying

It took 2 months after the article appeared but at least they admit they lied. Now if they would only admit that they made it up to hurt the President, that would be real progress.

An article on Feb. 9 about the military's recruitment of Hispanics referred incompletely to the belief of some critics that Hispanics in the Iraq war and blacks in the Vietnam War accounted for a disproportionate number of casualties. Statistics do not support the belief. Hispanics, who are about 14 percent of the population, accounted for about 11 percent of the military deaths in Iraq through Dec. 3, 2005. About 12.5 percent of the military dead in Vietnam were African-Americans, who made up about 13. 5 percent of the general population during the war years. The error was pointed out in an e-mail in February; the correction was delayed for research after a lapse at The Times.

Not only did the democrat run Times lie the truth was exactly the opposite of what they claimed. One has to just shake their head when the Times claims that percentage wise more Hispanics died in Iraq than their general population percentage. Then to find out that they have died at a lower percentage than the national population.

You can add this lie to the Al Qaa Qaa lie in 2004, the "guy" who was the prisoner that had the fake wires attached to him at Abu Ghraib lie, the Katrina victim who was living in New York lie and the lie about the "30 headless bodies found in Baghdad. What an embarrassment this democrat paper has become.
