Aiding The Enemy?

Dave Dilegge and Bing West attack Nir Rosen for embedding with the Taliban. Here's West: addition to providing the Taliban with a propaganda coup, did he violate moral strictures, given that killing Americans was an objective of the very Taliban attacks he wanted to watch? Is a journalist guided by virtues higher than those of patriotism or nationalism? Does a journalist transcend the laws and norms governing other American citizens? And who is not a journalist, if every blog and e-mail is a branch of journalism?

Noah Shachtman rounds-up blogosphere blowback and gets a comment from Rosen.
