      "Really bad"

      The New Yorker is always at its worst when it is editorializing and this whole issue is one big distorted editorial. I'm no fan of Bush, but the fact that Obama is continuing many of Bush's war policies is not even mentioned. The writing is also so politically correct that if one didn't the motivations behind the conspirators you would think that it was just some sort of misunderstanding.
