Something Rotten in Denmark
So says Danish journalist Bo Elkjaer whose pointed letter to both Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen and President George W. Bush appeared in the popular daily newspaper, Ekstra Bladet, to greet Bush on his arrival today in Denmark. Last year Elkjaer won the Danish equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of events leading up to the U.S.-U.K invasion of Iraq. With the full support of the Ekstra Bladet management, Elkjaer did the kind of reporting and analysis largely missing from the U.S. "mainstream media."
The Danish journalist's letter reflects a continuing determination to hold his prime minister and the U.S. president accountable for the lies leading to launching of war on Iraq.
One is left wondering how long it will take U.S. journalists to summon the courage to ask the president this kind of pointed questions.
