WaPo’s Howard Kurtz exposes the inside politics behind NBC’s decision to dub Iraq a “civil war.”
Howard Mortman, former MSNBC employee, is not surprised.
And now, for some non-agenda-driven reporting, please read Michael J. Totten latest dispatch from Iraq on the best police force in the country and Bill Ardolino’s latest report from Iraq on the Fallujah police department. It’s news the MSM Bush-bashers can’t use.
Somewhat related: Remember the Oakland International Airport troop-snubbing story? There’s a new development. Thirdwavedave reports on an announcement to come tomorrow from Rep. John Mica via Andrea Shea-King:
During the interview, Mica gave our listeners some “inside information” about the Oakland airport that has yet to be shared, officially, with the public, but will be Tuesday when congress reconvenes.
Mica said the Department of Defense and Charter Flight Operators have agreed to halt all flights into the Oakland airport. Sacramento International, according to Mica, will likely be the airport to receive our troop layover flights from now on. Again, Mica said this will be announced in congress this Tuesday. Plus, he said he’d have more information at that time.
