I finally found one! I finally found an AP story on Iraq that does not include the running "body count" of American military deaths!

It also contains some honest to goodness truth and good news. It's not perfect, but it is a breath of fresh air from their usual M.O.

It's funny to see at the end of the story that the writers are in California... instead of Iraq.

[[ U.S. and Iraqi forces have encircled the insurgent stronghold of Tal Afar, and the Iraqi military on Thursday announced the arrest of 200 suspected insurgents _ most of them foreign fighters.

The Iraqi military said 150 of those arrested Wednesday in this town near the Syrian border were Arabs from Syria, Sudan, Yemen and Jordan. ]] (LINK to story)

Hmmm... 75 percent of them are NOT Iraqi "freedom fighters"? How is michael moore going to take that news? It might make him turn to more food for comfort... better hide the small children (hide the medium ones, too).

Good news out of Tal Afar today (10 Sep). Iraqis are starting to carry the ball themselves now, and it was Talabani who gave the directive to retake the city.

I'm convinced that GWB's war approval ratings would be higher if we erred more often on the side of kicking more ass, rather than less.
