Al Qaeda's Military Chief In Diyala Killed

Following on the heels of the deaths of two other Al Qaeda bigs.

Yes, this is a significant success, and it comes less than 24 hours after the deaths of two other Al Qaeda leaders, one in the Hilla region of The Triangle of Death, which I reported yesterday, and another one named Ali Latief al-Falahi, who was killed just north of Baghdad, which I didnít even have a chance to report yet. Theyíre just killing these boys too fast.

Now when can we start killing the Al Qaeda in DC? I guess itíll be more fun to wait until after Petraeus has finished neutering them. It would appear that for this moment, the United States military is the most powerful poltical force in Washington DC. No one seems to realize that the military is now de facto calling all of the shots of the nationís war policy. Which means it is controlling the most powerful political force in the country. The military now controls the fate of the Democrat party, instead of the other way around, as the Dems tried so very hard to have it. The Dems tried to deny the military its just and hard won victory. Now the military will have its vengeance, as it denies the enemy within, theirs.

On the Dennis Miller/Breitbart show, Dollard mentioned that media gave great play to the assassinations of two Iraqi provincial governors -- as they should. Obviously those were important and newsworthy attacks by the enemy.

But when the perpetrators were caught within 24 hours, did the media report that? Of course not.

A war looks pretty bad when all you report are the friendly casualties. Wouldn't want the American public to get the "wrong idea" by also reporting on enemy casualties and US/Coalition successes, eh?

Thanks to Purple Avenger for reminding me of that part of the Dollard interview.
