« When Political Correctness Kills | Main | Step Two Of The Palestinian Triangle Offense »
Jack Kelly tells us in his column today what really should have been obvious since January 30th -- that the Iraq War has been won, and the media has missed the story entirely:
It will be some months before the news media recognize it, and a few months more before they acknowledge it, but the war in Iraq is all but won. The situation is roughly analogous to the battle of Iwo Jima, which took place 60 years ago this month. It took 35 days before the island was declared secure, but the outcome was clear after day five, with the capture of Mt. Suribachi.
Proof of this was provided by Sen. Hillary Clinton. Iraq is functioning quite well, she said in a press conference in Baghdad Feb. 19. The recent rash of suicide attacks is a sign the insurgency is failing, she said.
"When politicians like [Clinton] start flocking to Iraq to bask in the light of its success, then you know that the corner has been turned," a reader of his blog wrote to Bay.
Kelly wants to know when journalists and media outlets will finally be held accountable for malpractice for getting almost every development in the war on terror wrong. Since I know Jack reads the blogs, I know that question is meant rhetorically -- Jack already has provided the evidence, and the media will get its trial among its activist readership in the blogosphere. Read his whole column, and while you're at it, ask your local paper why Jack's column doesn't appear there. They may not like the microscope Jack aims at their credibility.

They (do I need to say who "they" are?) were against the war in Iraq, and they still are. And when you gently point out that we won the war, their response amounts to, "Well, we shouldn't have!"
