Great News, Ignored By Press

Read this transcript from Rush's show. Our military is kicking al Qaeda's butt, and the traitors in the media are doing their best not to cover it.

RUSH: I want to call for the attention of all military personnel, both in this country and around the world listening to this hour on the Armed Forces Radio Network. I have three stories. Two of them are big. The first one is just literally amazing. It is from page A-19 of the New York Times. May I share with you how giddy with awe and pride I am over the job our military personnel are doing in Iraq? Get this headline from the New York Times: "Militant Group Is Out of Baghdad, US Says." Well, now, who could that be, ladies and gentlemen? Let me just share with you some of the details of the story. "American forces have routed Al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia, the Iraqi militant network, from every neighborhood of Baghdad, a top American general said today, allowing American troops involved in the 'surge' to depart as planned.

Sure, the New York Times would MUCH rather run a headline like, "American forces defeated in Baghdad." Now THAT would be all over page 1.

"Major-General Joseph F. Fil, Jr., commander of United States forces in Baghdad, also said that American troops had yet to clear some 13% of the city, including Sadr City and several other areas controlled by Shiite militias. But, he said, 'there's just no question' that violence had declined since a spike in June. 'The Iraqi people have just decided that they've had it up to here with violence,' he said, while noting that their demands for electricity, water and jobs have intensified." We have beaten Al-Qaeda - they call Al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia - we have beaten Al-Qaeda in Iraq in Baghdad. They are out. They have been routed. "Militant Group Is Out of Baghdad, US Says." Only thing left is the 13% of the city controlled by Mookie and his boys. This is huge news. I don't know if you go and declare full-fledged victory, but this is profound news, A-19 of the New York Times with a headline that's not going to inspire anybody to want to read the story. You tell me that there's not an agenda in the Drive-By Media. I have people still trying to tell me this. This is almost like, "Shhhh, don't tell anybody, don't tell anybody, whisper this, Al-Qaeda is gone from Baghdad, don't tell anybody. We have to report it but we'll try to confuse it as much as we can." That's probably what went on at the editorial meeting at the New York Times.

The transcript is full of information you won't get in the media. Our military is truly superb, and we need to continue to give them our full support. God bless America!

JASmius asks: If the Times headline had been "American forces defeated in Baghdad" or something similar, do you think they would have tacked on the suffix "U.S. says" to it?

Well, maybe "U.S. finally admits"....
