Did the NYT get the headline backwards? Call Raines!
Notice in this piece how it admits that fighting has not been fierce IN WEEKS. By the way, what happened to everyone screaming about the hundreds of thousands of deaths we are supposedly inflicting on innocent people and on the terrorists( when we get the time)? Why don't we have a story every time this happens? We get a 24-hour news cycle when any Coalition force takes a hit - why can't we see the ENEMY getting hit? Are these the first casualties we have inflicted on the enemy? Context?
Update - 1-7-04 - This piece only displays the first two sentences, and then asks for an archival fee to view the rest. By the way, enjoy the NYT for free online now, because they are thinking of making it a full-pay service. Down with those evil corrupt capitalists!
