Iraq accounted for 18 percent of their prominent news coverage in the first nine months of 2007, but only 9 percent in the following three months, and 3 percent so far this year.”

  Meanwhile the dying goes on, as in this horrifying scene from a few days ago., in which a suicide bomb disrupted an Iraqi Council meeting in Sadr City where the US soldiers acted as unwitting human shields.  This man, Qasim al-Sudani, was injured but probably saved by the 4 Americans, one Italian and six Iraqis who were not.  One was a State Department worker, the fourth to die in Iraq.   In Mosul, a policeman and a child were killed.  In Southern Baghdad  the chairman of the local council was shot down with 9 bullets in his chest as he opened his door.
