Let's compare a couple of sentences:
Emboldened a day after a successful jailbreak, insurgents laid siege to another prison Wednesday. This time, U.S. troops and a special Iraqi unit thwarted the pre-dawn attack south of Baghdad, overwhelming the gunmen and capturing 50 of them... (emphasis added)
Although the raid failed, the insurgents' ability to put together such large and well-armed bands of fighters underlined concerns about the ability of Iraqi police and military to take over the fight from U.S. troops."Underlined" according to whom? The Associated Press?
Iraqi police captured a couple dozen bad guys, therefore America's "strategery" has failed?!?!?!
Just for the record - I am getting really, really tired of the MSM's aiding and abetting.
