Power line blog links to an article about the successful operations of the ING that took place yesterday. The blogger comments on this subject saying:

"I keep seeing more and more of this type of terrorist cleansing activity. What is more interesting is that the Iraqi National Guard is more and more active in these arrests. I have also noticed that more and more actions based on tips are being reported.
Check your local newspaper tomorrow morning and see whether these successes by the Iraqi National Guard have been reported. Then ask yourself whether any successful terrorist attack, whether via car bomb, attack on a police station, kidnapping, or whatever, has ever gone unreported in your local paper. Then ask your local paper why half of the story is missing."

I have a similar question here: you must have heard (or will hear in the coming few hours) of the car bomb attack that killed 18 ING corps yesterday but would you hear of the above piece if blogs haven't reported it?

I just want to clarify something to some of the readers and writers who say that we're focusing on certain kind of news to support or advertise for the policy or ideology of a certain party or group; all we're trying to do here through this blog is to give people the opportunity to view the missing part of the image to help them build a better understanding so that they can make a more accurate judgment.

I'm not writing to please someone; that's not what I want to do. I just want to make sure that as many people as possible can have access to as many parts of the story as possible.
If anyone finds something wrong with that, I'll be here to listen.
