Military Commander Declares War In Iraq Quagmire, "Darkness Becoming Pitch Black;" For Once, The MSM Does Not Pounce

I'm glad they allowed one of our commanders to give a frank assessment of Iraq without cranking the volume up to 11 and blaring his ill-considered candor all over the world, thereby demoralizing our troops.

Kudos, MSM. You got this one right, burying the story in the American interest.

Update: Oh, I seem to be misinformed. It wasn't one of our commanders declaring Iraq to be "darkness becoming pitch-black;" it was in fact Osama bin Ladin, or rather the actor hired to play the deceased Al Qaeda leader.

So I guess I know why the media went radio-silent on this:

Recent report from US commanders in Iraq have stated al Qaeda in Iraq has been set back by a combination of the latest offensive and the willingness of local Iraqis to turn on the terror group. Based Osama bin Laden's latest audiotape, al Qaeda central command agrees that the fight against the US and the Iraqi government is not going well.

A clearer picture of Osama bin Laden's view on the state of jihad in Iraq emerges after the release of the full transcript of Osama bin Laden's latest audiotape, Not only does bin Laden admit errors in the Iraqi leader's ability to unite the tribes and Sunni insurgent groups, he views the situation in Iraq as dire for al Qaeda. Bin Laden accuses his foot soldier of "negligence" for failing to properly employ IEDs, laments the unwillingness of Iraqis who do not wish to attack their brothers in the police and army, and closes his statement by saying "the darkness [in Iraq] has become pitch black."

Whatever you do, MSM, don't report this. It's obviously not news, and even if it is "news," it's not news you can use.
