Good News Is Hard To Find
It took awhile but I found this article I had heard rumors about. The main sewer media would never publish news like this. Google returned only dead links when I searched for this article. Persistence paid off. What a shame! Shame on the media for hiding the truth about all the good things happening in Iraq.

Citizens Turn Over 'Butcher of Ramadi' to Iraqi, U.S. Troops
American Forces Press ServiceWASHINGTON, Dec. 9, 2005 – The terrorist known as "the Butcher of Ramadi" was detained today, turned in by local citizens in the provincial capital of Iraq's Anbar province, U.S. military officials in Iraq reported.

Amir Khalaf Fanus -- listed third on a "high-value individuals" list of terrorists wanted by the 28th Infantry Division's 2nd Brigade Combat Team -- was wanted for criminal activities including murder and kidnapping. Ramadi citizens brought him to an Iraqi and U.S. forces military base in Ramadi, where he was taken into custody.

Fanus was well known for his crimes against the local populace. He is the highest-ranking al Qaeda in Iraq member to be turned in to Iraqi and U.S. officials by local citizens.
His capture is another indication that the local citizens tire of the terrorists' presence within their community, Multinational Force Iraq officials said, adding that Iraqi and U.S. forces have witnessed increasing signs of citizens fighting the terrorists in Ramadi as the Dec. 15 national elections draw near.

Officials said 1,200 more Iraqi soldiers recently have been posted in Ramadi. About 1,100 Iraqi special police commandos and a mechanized Iraqi army company completed their planned movement into the city. This plan has Iraqi security forces assuming more of the security responsibilities from the U.S. forces, officials said. As in other locations, as security improves, Iraqi police also will be introduced gradually.

My son-in-law is over there and he recently told me that the Iraqis are always turning in the insurgents. The only people who are surprised is the MSM.

Rev. can you translate that comment into English? No it doesn't have to be the Queens English, just give us a clue as to how it applies to anything in this article.
Thanks for your visit anyway.

And violence worker....
MSM to me has become Mostly Sewage Media...Mainstreet Sewer Mouths, or something like that. I'm working on a list to describe MSM

I have to dig a little, but I find the real news.

WL and VW... God bless both of ya...
VW I hear the same thing too and the MSM are so surprised... that they seem to go into shock and forget to report on it. They’ve been getting the heck shocked out of them here lately I’d have to say......
WL give us a heads-up when you get that MSM post put together and up on your site....

As far as the MSM goes, I did a Google search and found 123 MSM reports based on that very news release.

I think a lot of conservatives believe what they want to believe -- without reading many papers.

Yes, this one story about one guy, yes. But this happens more often than this. It happens all the time. What we are saying is that the press seems to be surprised that it even happens.

I think a lot of liberals need to learn to read what we say. No one said it wasn't occasionally reported, merely that they are surprised about it.


P.S. to WL:
