Wasn’t it great to have a holiday season not overshadowed by bad news from Iraq? We also weren’t given a lot of good news from Iraq, even though there is quite a bit. Tony Blankley has come up with a memorable way to summarize the media’s handling of success in iraq:

“In Iraq, as military and security conditions continue to improve, American war politics enters one of its stranger moments in our history. Certainly it is historically odd for war reporting to diminish almost to the point of public invisibility — just as our troops are starting to gain the upper hand. But we are fighting this war with the journalists we have, not the ones we want.”
