Media Watch-USA Today

What better way is there to wrap up a story about the sixty year anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, then to throw in a completely gratuitous slap at the President?
The A-bomb indeed was hell for Japanese who lived in or near Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But it also was the high-water mark of WWII because it ended the hell for all others fighting that conflict.

Truman will be remembered as the president who brought us both victory and peace in a war that was justified and necessary. By contrast, self-proclaimed "War President" George Bush has brought us neither victory nor peace in the Iraq war, which former president Jimmy Carter this week called "unnecessary and unjust."
