AP Photographer Caught Working for Insurgents

You know how you can tell we're winning in Iraq?  By the way the nightly news programs are covering the war in Iraq.  When the news is bad for the US, there's lots and lots of coverage.  However, when there is no bad news, there is no coverage.  Nada.  Zilch.

But here's a good one (they'll probably miss), and also indicative of the wave of victory going on over there; let me read this one slowly:

"The U.S. military says it has 'convincing and irrefutable' evidence that an award-winning Associated Press photographer is connected to the insurgency in Iraq."

You can read there rest of it here.

During WWII, AP photographers cooperated with the US Government, and actually reported with propaganda favoring the Americans, even if the news was bad.  They even agreed not to print casualty reports, so as not to discourage the nation.  Today, they can actually be working for the enemy.  The pendulum has swung off its axis.  My how things have changed since "the greatest generation."
