The Ground Realities in Iraq (Michael Yon's reports)

Micheal Yon is in Iraq, alongside American troops in operation, observing what happens and noting the stark contrast between what is actually going on (re: whether some regions are gaining peace and independence) and what most of the media in America is saying (that they are not). They wouldn't know. Or if they do, they either pay no attention to or deliberately ignore the fact, as Yon explores in this article. Why so many in our media seem to wish fantasies of American failure into seeming existence is baffling.

Also brought to my attention is his article about evidence that Al-Qauda slaughtered an entire village in Afghanistan, a story which most news media have all but ignored.
