The Good News from Iraq is not Fit to Print

WHAT WAS the most important news out of Iraq last week?

That depends on what you consider ''important." Do you see the war against radical Islam and Ba'athist fascism as the most urgent conflict of our time?

Jeff Jacoby bump. If you think liberals in New England don't read Jacoby (albeit on the sly), you're wrong. As the disappointing Fitzmas recedes, and the emptiness of what the far-left "mainstream" media is spewing becomes more apparent, they are having to embrace some new truths.
