Tired of bad news, day in and day out, coming out of IraqNam? Not to worry! Things are changing for the better!
This weekend, Darth Cheney made a surprise stop in IraqNam. He had two goals, first to force the Iraqi legislators to pass a hideous petro-law that would insure Haliburton's and US Oil's future supplies for a generation. He also met with the Iraqi military leadership. The very next day, the same Iraqi military leaders placed a ban on all photos and video of any insurgent bomb blast. Their purported reason is that shooting the scene on film or in digital format, will somehow destroy forensic evidence and interfere with their "investigations".
And did I tell you that I have a bridge for sale in Brooklyn? Cheap, yet strong!
What surprises me most is how the US media has responded to this obvious attack on a free media (mainly ours). The silence is deafening. I am at a loss for words to explain the lack of reaction. It was bad enough to make an illegal ban on photos of US soldiers' caskets and funerals (allegedly for privacy reasons) but this is almost beyond belief.
So, we now know that Cheney's instructions were to Iraq – we need GOOD NEWS, even if you have to manufacture it, and hide the truth.
I am so proud of our news organizations. Sanjaya, Anna Nicole, and end of school pranks are far more important than our invasion and deadly occupation of another country.
