The month of May saw the "lowest" military deaths in Iraq since the war began at only 19 total U.S. deaths (See chart: "Military Deaths By Year/Month"). So, where's the fanfare? Where's the AP headlines? Did anyone see the New York Times cover it on page one?
As far as the liberal media is concerned, it was a non-event. It is something that "they" would prefer that you didn't know. After all, they wouldn't want you to know of any marked improvements in Iraq. That would reflect unfavorably on the Democrats and who might not be able to gain complete control of our country in the next election. The news media is solidly in the tank behind Barack Obama, Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the rest of the "tail between their legs" Democrats who have been touting "the war is lost" for as long as I can remember. Saying the "Surge" worked in Iraq would be like supporting John McCain; and, as we all know, they (The New York Times (NYT), and et al.) wouldn't want to do that. After all, the "Times" motto of "All The News That is Fit To Print" actually means: When the "News" is a "Fit" with their political agenda it will be printed!
Note: Earlier this week, the media headlines and front page stories were filled will the "negative" story about the fact that military suicides are up.
