September 2008 ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å VICTORY IN IRAQ!
What kind of headline would you expect newspapers nationwide to trumpet if America won the war in Iraq and destroyed al-Qaida there?
Maybe something like this? "VICTORY IN IRAQ! AL-QAIDA SMASHED!" Perhaps even old-fashioned newsboys on the street corners, yelling "Extra, extra! Vic'try in Iraq! Read all about it!"
Don't hold your breath. You won't see such headlines in American newspapers or leading network news broadcasts ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å even though, believe it or not, by all credible accounts America has indeed won the war in Iraq!
You see, the "mainstream press" isn't really too excited about America winning the war. Why? It's just bad timing: Success in Iraq didn't fit the media's overriding agenda for 2008, which was to further discredit George W. Bush and Republicans, and to ensure that Barack ("We must end this failed war") Obama was elected president and as many Democrats as possible were installed in Congress, legislatures and statehouses nationwide.
There is, however, at least one media entity that is telling the whole story of America's stunning success in Iraq, and that is WND's elite monthly Whistleblower magazine, in the inspiring September 2008 edition, "VICTORY IN IRAQ!"
Ironically, 2008 has become known as "the year the media died," because of its astonishingly biased treatment of the two major presidential candidates ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å network anchor groupies tagging along with Obama on his European campaign trip while all but ignoring McCain; the New York Times running Obama's op-ed on Iraq but refusing to run McCain's response the following week, and so on.
But there's another area in which the media died that year ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å namely, coverage of the Iraq war.
Sure, while things were going terribly and it looked like America was losing, news coverage was constant ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å and unrelentingly negative. Bad news ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å IED attacks, political setbacks, accusations of atrocities on the part of U.S. soldiers, statements by Democrat leaders condemning the "failed" Iraq war ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å led the evening news night after night.
But recently, Americans haven't heard very much about Iraq. Reason: The news is good. In fact, as "VICTORY IN IRAQ!" dramatically documents, the U.S. was winning ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å big-time.
When you read "VICTORY IN IRAQ!," you'll find out why:
Following are just a few highlights of the many articles ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å accompanied by amazing photos ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å in "VICTORY IN IRAQ!"
"I think you will find this issue of Whistleblower enlightening and uplifting," says WND founder and editor Joseph Farah. "Sometimes it seems the news doesn't give us much to smile about. The turnabout in Iraq should provide every American and every freedom-loving, peace-loving person in the world reason to cheer."
