Lt. Col. Ralph Peters thinks the New York Times is hurting America. OK, so lots of conservatives think that all the time, but the Fox News strategic analyst has a particular bone to pick with the yesterday's front-page story about the US' expanded ground operations in the middle east, and he went on Bill O'Reilly's show to pick it. “They tipped our secret operations, our black operations approach … to the terrorists!” he declared.

He added that the Times “doesn't like the military very much,” and “celebrated” the Abu Ghraib scandal. He called publisher Arthur Sulzberger “a man with no regard for his country.” For his part, O'Reilly seemed pretty skeptical throughout, questioning how such a general story could help America's enemies. “It's no big thing,” he said. Mediaite also notes that the Times typically consults the government before publishing sensitive information. (More Bill O'Reilly stories.)
