CBS News publishes Weekly Standard column on "9/11 Generation"

When did it become CBS policy to reprint neocon propaganda pieces from The Weekly Standard?

The 9/11 Generation And History
Nov. 12, 2008(Weekly Standard) This column was written by Dean Barnett.

In the 1960s, history called the Baby Boomers. They didn't answer the phone.

Confronted with a generation-defining conflict, the cold war, the Boomers--those, at any rate, who came to be emblematic of their generation--took the opposite path from their parents during World War II. Sadly, the excesses of Woodstock became the face of the Boomers' response to their moment of challenge. War protests where agitated youths derided American soldiers as baby-killers added no luster to their image.

Few of the leading lights of that generation joined the military. Most calculated how they could avoid military service, and their attitude rippled through the rest of the century. In the 1970s, '80s, and '90s, military service didn't occur to most young people as an option, let alone a duty.

The Weekly Standard is the newspaper I used to refer to as the "PNAC Newspaper." The editor is William Kristol, co-founder of the Project For A New American Century. The same man who reminded us about the double standard that it was "ok" to blame Bill Clinton for 9/11, but Bush was hands off. The same man who asked, "are we really to believe that Bush just sat around after 9/11 thinking, "How can I aggrandize my powers?" The Weekly Standard has described Cynthia McKinney as a "leftist conspiracy wacko," and has attacked her on more than one occasion. Their "opinions" can not, and should not be trusted. - Jon
