What you aren't reading in the New York Times.

There are some news the editors of the far left liberal New York Times doesn't want Americans to know.
Thankfully, the British press doesn't have a problem with reporting it.
From the Times Online:

After being forced from its strongholds in the west and centre of Iraq in the past two years, Al-Qaeda’s dwindling band of fighters has made a defiant “last stand” in the northern city of Mosul.

A huge operation to crush the 1,200 fighters who remained from a terrorist force once estimated at more than 12,000 began on May 10.

Operation Lion’s Roar, in which the Iraqi army combined forces with the Americans’ 3rd Armoured Cavalry Regiment, has already resulted in the death of Abu Khalaf, the Al-Qaeda leader, and the capture of more than 1,000 suspects.

...Nouri al-Maliki, Iraq’s prime minister, who has also led a crackdown on the Shi’ite Mahdi Army in Basra and Baghdad in recent months, claimed yesterday that his government had “defeated” terrorism.


Hmmm...once again it looks like McCain was exactly right on the troop surge in Iraq and Barak H. Obama was completely and utterly wrong.
