The worst part of this headline contains all kinds of subtle press malfeasance, to wit-
- "Study" - this takes the onus of proof away from the reporter, who now can say he/she was "just" reporting. Yeah, like the bullshit Lancet study? Remember, only BAD news about Iraq makes the news headlines, and only negative studies.
- That is a file photo. It has NOTHING to do with the story. If this were Bosnia, the picture would have been of a mass grave, none of which have been found in Iraq, if I were to get my news only from your headlines. Or at least on any front page of ABC, MSNBC, CBS, BBC, with near the frequency as this tripe.
- Worst of all, the headline pretends that the idiot journalists know better how to conduct operations and logistics for our troops. Go cover a candlelight vigil, or a cat in the tree story, please. You are not needed in Iraq, we won, despite you.
