Yesteday in Iraq

When I read the news from yesterday in Iraq, both in the American Washington Post and the New Zealand, New Zealand Herald, I got the gist that a number of people had been rescued, and the US has had it up to here with Moqtada's army. But you did have to read between the lines in order to know that it wasn't US troops killing civilians and arresting politicians.
Big Lizards will give you the blow by blow.
It's pretty sad when we use the media to interpret events for us and then we have to re-interpret what they say.
