"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Where's the OUTRAGE???

Spree has cross posted at Faultline USA by request of the Tanker Brothers a post that is not a record of U.S. abuses at Abu Ghraib, or its daily Pol Pot activities or it's John "JFKnot" Kerry door kicking in tactics.

No, this is one of those mundane stories that involves the minor details the media feels not worthy of following up on or continuing after an initial report; after all as nasty and sad as it is, it belies a positive note that may be misconstrued as an indication of anything not negative coming out of Iraq. The story itself is not uplifting, but the U.S. presence in Iraq made the revelation.

The Tanker Brothers have made it their mission. Babies...mind you...oh, yeah that's right we've killed babies....our soldiers are baby killers too, right? No; not specific to the mission and not WMD related, but an unfortunate indicator to those that see our nation as evil, warmongering imperialists are wrong. Wrong because those of our numbers that represent us in Iraq and elsewhere are the best of the best and do what they do because they are human and do love and want to help. They're in Iraq to protect the nation they love; in the process they found and find the people in immediate need.

By request, a cross post from Tanker Brothers at Faultline USA:

"Remember this?

Or this?

Or this?

One week ago today, I woke to these pictures, just as the rest of us did. As always when I witness any kind of cruelty to children, my broken heart shattered into even more tiny pieces.

One week! One week - and CBS reported on this horrific scene that our troops almost missed. Almost missed, but didn't; I can only guess that was by the grace of God that they did NOT walk by unknowing what horrors lurked behind the wall.

On a daytime patrol in central Baghdad just over than a week ago, a U.S. military advisory team and Iraqi soldiers happened to look over a wall and found something horrific...."They saw multiple bodies laying on the floor of the facility," Staff Sgt. Mitchell Gibson of the 82nd Airborne Division told CBS News ... "They thought they were all dead, so they threw a basketball (to) try and get some attention, and actually one of the kids lifted up their head, tilted it over and just looked and then went back down. And they said, 'oh, they're alive' and so they went into the building." [source]
One week ago, msm like CBS gave this story front page status. One week on? Nothing. Zip. Zero. NADA. You might be forgiven if you think it was all a bad dream, now that the media has gone on to the next big 'scoop'. They might have moved on, but I will not - and I will not allow self-righteous, self-serving politicians of the world to move on.

Yes, these are ugly pictures showing, for all to see, the basest of human nature, and we ALL want to turn away. The msm has, but I will not."
