The Media's fault

Bodies of 23 Men Found in Baghdad:
The bodies of 23 men who had been strangled or shot were found in two locations in Baghdad Wednesday morning, with 18 discovered aboard an abandoned bus in a predominantly Sunni area of the capital, police and the U.S. military said.

All of the victims on the bus were found with their hands tied by rope, according to an official in the in the Baghdad police operations room who would not be quoted by name. He said 15 of the victims, including the driver of the bus, had been strangled and three had been shot in the back of the head.
I bet that this wouldn't be a problem if the media didn't report it. Yeah, that's the problem. The media. The fact that death squads are roaming the country, that we failed to bring stability to Iraq, those are the fault of people who report these things.

If only we'd all clap harder.
