Am I stupid, brainwashed, or... a careful reader?

Iraqi Insurgents Go on Rampage, Kill 69

OK, read the headline, read the story, look at the (truncated) picture caption, then the extended caption.

A casual reading is, "oh, snap, not only is the insurgency growing, but they are getting more effective, and the US is STILL screwing up!"

Look just a *tad* bit deeper and it's clear that the insurents are getting less effective, more desparate, and that Us troops - as almost always - act with professionalism and restraint.
