...I don't think the MSM in general likes reporting success in the war against al Qaeda in Iraq, because there's a strong desire on the part of the anti-war crowd to characterize the enemy in Iraq as "insurgents."
...it's what the MSM don't want most Americans to know.
Because, the more the ignorant "little people" are allowed to read about al Qaeda's butchery, the more they'll tend to think entering Iraq might not have been a bad idea after all.
They might not be in as much of a hurry to pull out and leave the Iraqi children to the tender mercies of the beheaders.
Really undermining the effort.Update: see this at Power line: Jihadists On Defense, also this incredible atrocity.
