Remarkable event in the Arab world

President Bush gave a speech yesterday focusing on the upcoming vote in Iraq. He pointed out that this is a remarkable event in the Arab world. He emphasized the importance of the vote on Iraq's path to democracy. He noted that unlike votes in the past, many Sunnis will participate. We also know that Iraqi security forces will provide the majority of the security at the polling stations. We know that Sunni clerics are calling on the terrorists to not disrupt the vote.

So what headline does the N&O choose to run at the top of 1A?

Bush: Vote won't end violence.

Another sad display of journalistic bias and incompetence.
