A new low of cynicism at the NYT

whether it was intended that way or not, the following headline and the accompanying teaser on this op-ed in today's nyt strikes me as unrelievedly cynical...
Gates, Truth and Afghanistan

The fact that Defense Secretary Robert Gates was permitted the candor that he demonstrated last week is a measure of how bad things have gotten in Afghanistan. [emphasis added]

gates was PERMITTED to engage in candor...?? lord, i never thought i'd read a comment like that about a united states cabinet member...
