Did you know that the overwhelming majority of soldiers and marines fighting in Iraq support the President's handling of the war?


Did you know that the overwhelming majority of troops in Iraq believe this war is a noble cause?


You don't know any of these facts if you get your information from the mainstream press. For whatever reason, these powerful media outlets spend a disproportionate amount of time reporting on the treachery of terrorists instead of the work of those building the first democratic Arab state in Middle East history.


Former U.S. House Speaker Sam Rayburn once said that any jackass can kick down a barn. It takes a carpenter to build one.


Sadly, American media remains fixated on the jackass angle of this remarkably important story. It seems freedom doesn't sell newspapers.
