...this story isn't making many headlines? We heard endless coverage of the aftermath of the recent mosque bombing and the possibility that Iraq was descending [finally] into civil war; but when unity breaks out there is... silence.
By now, you know the drill. Avoid or dance around any story that goes against the basic template that Iraq is a quagmire; or that disproves any deeply held beliefs of the left about George Bush and the War on Terror.
Deviation from the template is taboo.
