BBC – Washington diary: Martians and celebs

The country was embroiled in a losing war in Iraq…

Townhall – Shhhh… The Surge is Working

Early indications are that the troop surge into Baghdad is working.

Gee, I dunno. That second article actually mentions a real aspect of the war it’s commenting on. The other is a news analysis piece on diaper-wearing astronauts and Britney Spears which mentions the war in a throw-away line but gives no details or even demonstrates any real knowledge in any detail beyond that it’s in Iraq. Obviously it’s the one I’m gonna believe.
