Some of my readers might notice the news sidebar on this site. That’s the place where I tag news items of interest as deemed by me, The Editor. Never one to hold out on another Adirondacker, especially one of the few really good bloggers in our area, my technique was shared with the Almanack. I suppose the definition of what is “Adirondack” news can be loose and free, even I stray occasionally.
OK, so I tagged an article about the Canadian forces surrounding a group of Taliban in Afghanistan. With the obvious mainstream media bias, good news from our conflict in the Middle East is hard to come by. Agree or disagree, we have friends, neighbors, and FELLOW AMERICANS fighting and dying over there right now while we fritter away here.
LGF and others have noted the “Disgusting and Ghoulish Beyond Belief” Associated “Press” story entitled “US Iraq Deaths Exceed 9/11 Count“. Imagine my surprise to find this article tagged under “adknews” !!! Well as we say in the North Country, “Merry Frickin’ Christmas”.
My message to those “over there” – Illegitimi Non Carborundum
Update: Before you ever believe another “report” from AP or if you still believe in their objectivity, read this: Jamil Hussein controversy. The “fake but accurate” Dan Rather fans may simply move along.
I agree, 9/11 and Iraq, there is a connection.
