Bigger Picture

The left continues to claim that we are losing the war in Iraq, and the MSM supports that false assertion by playing up any story on coalition losses. But the underlying story is that the insurgency is losing. You only catch a glimpse of that truth in the N&O.

In an article today about the recent attack on the MI-8 helicopter with the Blackwater employees, one paragraph in the AP story revealed that a civilian Iraqi tipped US soldiers off about the location of the insurgents who attacked the helicopter. When the locals are feeding info to US troops, which they have been doing for some time, it means the insurgents are losing badly. This story deserves the front page as much as the story about the helicopter going down.
