Looting Hypocrisy

Michelle Malkin said at the time of the Baghdad lootings shortly after the invasion, “Peter Jennings and the New York Times couldn’t get enough of the looting stories out of Iraq.”

Her comments were echoed by Donald Rumsfeld:

Stuff happens… Freedom’s untidy, and free people are free to make mistakes and commit crimes and do bad things.

Now Malkin can’t get enough of the looting stories out of Hurricane Katrina:


Things are spiraling completely out of control — and contrary to some naive observers, the crimes are not just being committed by people desperate for basic food and sustenance.
