To the Editor:
Predictably, Bill Keller is now beating the drum for war in Syria. But first, there's that matter of being so wrong in Iraq. That, he concedes was "humiliating". But this time is different! You see the sectarian violence that David Petraeus empowered and armed in Iraq is already flaring towards civil war in Syria, so it won't be our fault!
If no editor at the Times dares take a blue pencil to Bill Keller's ravings, it will be left to the readers. He can't fire us.
