The Associated (Jazeera) Press Reports!

Click here for AmazonI was surprised -- but not shocked -- to read the following paragraph in the AP news story regarding the rocket attack on US troops in Mosul. Slobodan Lekic reports:

...A radical Sunni Muslim group, the Ansar al-Sunnah Army, claimed responsibility for the attack — the latest in a week of deadly strikes across Iraq that highlighted the unwavering power of the insurgents in the run-up to the Jan. 30 national elections...

The unwavering power of the insurgents? What happened to the 1,500 insurgents that were in Fallujah with hundreds of weapons caches as recently as a few weeks ago? Did their "unwavering power" prevent the US Marines from flattening them?

This is simply another opinion piece wrapped in what purports to be a news story. And, that's nothing new for the Associated (Jazeera) Press.
