Writing/ New York Times

What do i search? It gives me no results when i search Losing the Good War on cnn.

You are searching for information that is so specific that you have to be prepared for the possibility that none of it may be online. Or some may be, and some may not. In addition to searching on the Internet, you also need to make best friends with the reference librarian(s) in your local or college library.

At this webpage, you can go immediately to the search sites (first three columns across the top) -- or even better you can scroll down until you see the section called HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. Those are the links to start with. You'll not only learn how to come up with good search terms, but also how to evaluate the webpages you get as results. Some will be good and others will be garbage. You need to know how to tell the difference.

My favorite way to search is to go to Google's advanced search page
< http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en > and put my search words or phrases into the first or second search box (either "all the words" or "exact phrase"). However, there many other strategies for searching you can use, and the HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET section will help you best.

Studs Terkel wrote a book: The Good War.

Gennerally "the Good War" means World War II.

The term may now be being used to allude to the idea that the current wars were somehow percieved as "Good", and the change of that perception or "Losing" the "Goodness' of it. which war does the article mention?

I looked a few places for "losing the good war" and found nothing.

I found the editorial you mentioned. I believe this is the first use of the term in discussion of the Afganastan conflict. Look at the sources at the bottom of the page and, write to the author of the peice.
