For a slow news week, Jeff and a guest-poster Karl are sure heating it up over there. First is this detailed (but iceberg tippish) compendium of examples of media bias, mendacity, and malfeasance with regard to the Iraq War. Jeff followed it up with a post about how the press has Just Plain Got It Wrong about the British withdrawal from Basra.
Then in this post, Jeff quotes Dave Kilcullen at length on the dynamics of the tribal structure in Iraq and how it relates to the tribes' decision to give al Qaeda the heave-ho. None of which, of course, we have heard about in the MSM in any important detail.
