LONDON — A British tabloid said Tuesday it has hired reporter Peter Arnett shortly after he was fired by NBC-TV for saying on Iraqi television that the U.S.-led war effort had failed. (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,82763,00.html)

Arnett will have blood on his hands by being used as a propaganda tool for the Iraqi regime.
Both the blood of innocent Iraqi's, Iraqi military and coalition soldier's.
His statements will only result in more innocents being killed by the coalition (collatoral damage) and by the Saddam loyalists by forcing them to continue fighting .
His statements will give FALSE hope in the Bath Party hardliner's that they may be able to stop the this thing , making them more brutal to the civilians resulting in more suicide missions means more coalition casualties.
His statements will have no effect on the outcome of the war just will effect many lives.
He will have to live with this and I hope he has many sleepless nights.

I agree but my favourite Toronto Star columnist doesn't:
