If a Battle Is Won But the MSM Didn't Cover It, Did It Happen?

Good news doesn't just get ignored when it happens in Iraq:

When it comes to the struggle with terrorists, [Pakistani Ambassador and retired General Mahmud Ali] Durrani is passionate. It frustrates him that every Pakistani setback makes news while successes go ignored. He'd just returned from Swat, a beautiful, remote region where extremists had driven out the local government. We knelt over a map as he detailed a recent multibrigade operation that shattered the terrorists and forced their leader into hiding.

There hadn't been a whisper about that campaign in the Western media. Pakistan is typecast in the role of shirker.

That's Ralph Peters reporting, so read the whole thing.
