Ralph Peters points out the media's shameful non-reporting of the good news from Iraq.

And noting the egregious misediting of some of the President's comments, counselor Ed Gillespie properly calls out NBC on its "walk back" of its dramatic earlier characterization of the situation in Iraq as a "civil war."

The MSM was always going to be reluctant to find success in Iraq, given that it would bolster President Bush.  Now, with surge supporter McCain pairing off against a leave-right-now-at-any-cost Democrat, the incentive to play down any progress is twice as great.
