We Are Winning

Ralph Peters in The NY Post:

For patriotic Americans and freedom lovers everywhere, for the enemies of terror and the friends of tolerance, for the people of Iraq and of the United States, the captured terrorist documents contained nothing but great news - confirmation that we're winning, that terror is being defeated and that Iraq is on the road to recovery.

As for me, as I wrote this column yesterday afternoon, I pledged to myself that I was going to pick up The New York Times this morning. The Times has been reporting terrorist propaganda as Gospel truth for three years. Now I can't wait to see how the shady Gray Lady spins the truth the terrorists told each other.

Betcha we'll start hearing that the captured documents are all forgeries - so a badly burned "mainstream" media can get back to reporting "the truth" about Haditha, Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. In the meantime, our troops will continue to win this war.

Interestingly enough, it doesn't seem as if the Haditha story is gaining any traction. The media are reporting it but I think people are learning to be very sceptical of what they write.

When My Lai occurred, you had the CBS News with Walter Cronkite setting the tone and reporting on it daily. Now Americans have unlimited resources to form decisions including the blogosphere.

In a way, the MSM's constant headlining of bad news and quashing of good news has had the opposite effect of what the MSM intended. Americans seem to have decided that things can't be as bad as the media portray them to be and they will believe the good about American troops and discard the bad until proven as fact.
