Omar Mora and Yance Gray, two of the seven active duty soldiers who wrote a widely-read op-ed in the New York Times last month critical of the war in Iraq, have been killed in a vehicle accident in Baghdad (a third author of the piece, Jeremy Murphy, was shot in the head before the piece was published, but survived).

NYT editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal spoke to E&P about the deaths.

Tragic.
