    This is the one that took Al-Zarqawi's place after his deserved early meeting with Satan:

    The #2 and #3 Al Qaeda guys never have to wait long for their promotion, do they.

    It's part of the recruitment plan...offer plenty of promotion opportunity. The other benefits are equally rewarding...early retirement, no worries over medical care, travel, etc.

    Unfortunately, looks like there's a line for the job. I guess intelligence isn't a necessary job qualification.:cuckoo:

    It's too bad that the Iraqi news services and military spokeman are so notoroiously unreliable. I recall one report from early in the war saying that an atomic bomb had been found at the side of a road in Iraq. There have been some other high-profile news stories that got everyone's hopes up and then dashed them to the ground when it was found that the story was bogus. And it doesn't help that some of the major news outlets repeat these stories, because it makes them look unreliable too.

    There are some great things going on in Iraq right now. I've been using the Press Releases section of the Multi-National Force - Iraq website to post some of them on a predominately leftie discussion board where I hang out. It's a good resource.

    Its amazing how much you have to dig for that info. And they say the press isnt biased to the left.

    Heck, in WWll, when the marines did that famous raising of the flag, they even stood and posed for it, the press wanted to put out GOOD news, and how we were winning, they didnt want morale or support for the war to go away.

    The differences? We HAD to win WWll. Its not imperative we win in Iraq, so the liberals are willing to root for Iraq to fail because it will help them politically.

    It is a great resource, updated several times daily with stories of both victories and defeats. And to me, it is what a news organization should be, reporting just the facts about what happened and not telling us how we should feel about it or what the "experts" prognosticate for the future. Or what the politicians think.

    The organization in Afghanistan that corresponds to Multi-National Force - Iraq is called Combined Forces Command - Afghanistan. It is the largest multinational Coalition ever assembled in the history of the planet I would love to have some good news stories from Afghanistan as well as Iraq, but it appears that their website is unavailable. The Google cache of their website shows news stories posted as recently as March 6. A link to good news stories out of Afganistan would really make me happy.
