Enemy Press Watch

Today at work I watched a terrorist recruitment and propaganda video on CNN. Oh, sure it was just an 'exclusive look behind the scenes' in the insurgency they said. I don't believe there is a link to it on their website now and I'm certainly not going to link to it. You can find CNN on the web anyway.
So what we saw was a little video put out by a supposed former general of the Iraqi army. He gave the standard boilerplate about the insurgency being prepared before the invasion. Blah, blah, blah. We were treated to scenes of brave insurgents in the streets firing their heroic resistance weapons at the invading forces. By the way, this video was taken last year some time. Why, because this type of street fighting is non existant these days? Ya think? The former general claims over 200,000 Iraqis are members of this so-called resistance. Thugs and evildoers more likely. Any guesses how many really belong to this 'heroic' group? Who knows, certainly not me.
Can you tell me any good reason for this 'report' to have ever seen air time? I sure can't think of one. We can see from various other sources that although attacks continue, they are now reduced to suicide bombings, and drive bys. You do not hear of open street fighting or massed attacks. Why? Because the insurgency is not strong, it is not composed of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi patriots. No, it is a group of pathetic evildoers. Bitter enders and fanatics comprise the core of this activity. And now these brave heroes have a helper, a benefactor to build up their morale, and a sinister group who does all they can to discourage progress in nation building. The Enemy Press, CNN branch.
Go to hell CNN. You are the enemy, and we're watching you.
