    They seem to want to ignore this. I wonder why.

    Discuss.

    They are sad? Remember how their balkans coverage went? Remember how conservatives were complaining about nation building back then? Then remember all the cheer leading during the invasion and conquering of Iraq? Remember when we had a President in military garb declaring victory right before everything went to hell? Remember?

    I didn't say they weren't covering it.

    Could it be for the same reason why MSNBC ignores/ignored:

    1. Fast and Furious
    2. Solyndra
    3. Lightspeed
    4. Acorn prosecutions
    5. Exposure of Van Jones

    I just turned on my television, turned to Fox News, and it's about Qaddafi.

    You implied it. Baiting, again, Synthia? How pathetic.

    The BBC covered it... for less than 5 minutes... outrageous! And, they didn't even credit Obama! I was shocked. I shall write to the Director General of the BBC and voice the disapproval of Americans at this snub to our Glorious Leader.

    Rubio, McCain and his little companion didn't give credit to Obama either.

    Are you actually watching it, or are you just taking the pablum someone is feeding you saying they aren't covering it.

    (I don't know either way, as I don't have TV.)

    On their home page they seems to feel that US bugging out of Iraq is more news worthy. But it is the first story under the main story.

    This was a British French operation. Telling the truth is not something most of the mainstream media in this country likes to do. They prefer obamaworship.
