MSM AWOL! And why they have no credibility.
I just sent this email off to a friend of mine (I got the link from another friend):
You had a friend at Jeremy’s party who was opposed to the Iraqi war. I had mentioned an article on Fox called “What We’ve Accomplished”. He had never heard of any of what we’d accomplished in Iraq from that article and asked me why he hadn’t heard any of this. I returned the question to him.
Please send the following to him.
The bold italicized emphasis is mine.

Haider Ajina sends us this translation of an article in yesterday's Kululiraq, an Iraqi newspaper:
Iraqis stood for three minutes of silence yesterday in commemoration of the lives lost in the two attacks in Baghdad Aljadedah and Almusaiyab, which claimed 105 martyrs, 32 of whom were children, and 128 wounded of whom 31 were children.
Traffic of thousand of cars stopped in the Allawi & Tahrier area (central Baghdad) as children (from “Baghdad Aljadedah” area) entered “Tahrier” square (with some of the wounded children) carrying Iraqi flags and displaying victory signs in defiance of the terrorists. These children also stood silent for three minutes to commemorate their relatives and friends who died in the homicide bombing attack last week.
Iraqi Prime Minister Dr. Ibrahiem Aljaafary said in a speech regarding this incident: “We will not sway from our path and we will not kneel to those who commit these crimes.” He added, ”We are confident that all nations of this world stand beside us, because to day terrorism does not only affect us Iraqis but the whole world. We Iraqis have the honor of being in the front line in the fight against terrorism."
Tens of thousands of Iraqis stood silent for three minutes in over 130 Fahrenheit heat to commemorate victims of terror and in a sign of unified defiance of terrorism and I have not seen a single report on this. I waited all day Wednesday and all day today and nothing. The news reported the small anti America demonstration by Alsadar and some Baathists in April but some how missed the whole Iraqi nation standing still in defiance of terrorism.
When was the last time you heard an Arab leader say that his nation was honored to be in the front lines fighting terrorism?
Good question. The terrorists know that Iraq is the front line in the battle against terrorism; the Iraqis agree. Now if only we could convince the Democrats.
