Fateful Choice on Iraq Army Bypassed Debate

Let's play "spot the passive voice". Or rather, "spot the missing name".

Michael Gordon is widely regarded in the liberal blogosphere as a hack, if not a complete one. Here's an article in the NYT about the disbanding of the Iraqi army. It describes how that decision was made and approved. Well, no, it describes how mystified many of the main players were to find out the decision was made and approved. The article is an attempt to seem like the former, but all one needs to do is grep for the string "Cheney" in the article to read the tell.
