He is from the town of Tall 'Afar.
I've seen plenty about Dick Cheney, Guantanomo, and while in the UK last week, the beating of prisoners - with a video that was years old. Bascially, these 3 stories have been dominating our news cycle, OVER AND OVER again....and it's all negative, and deemed important by "people in the know." But, they keep harping on it, (Specifically, Editorial Boards of Major Newspapers, over and over - telling us all the negative stories of what's going on in the WAR in Iraq)
Any good news?
Anything positive going on?

WHY IS THIS NOT MAKING "all the news that is fit to print?" (emphasis on small letters, for my former favorite newspaper- it does not deserve capital anything in my book) -- I must guess that a letter like this one does NOT fit their ideology. Specifically, a letter from a Iraqi elected official, PRAISING our soldiers for saving his town from Zarqawi, and the terrorist's gang, killing the town's citizens.
Here are some quick quotes from the letter to our soldiers...from this brave Iraqi Mayor.
"To the Courageous Men and Women of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who have changed the city of Tall’ Afar from a ghost town, in which terrorists spread death and destruction, to a secure city flourishing with life.
To the lion-hearts who liberated our city from the grasp of terrorists who were beheading men, women and children in the streets for many months.
Our city was the main base of operations for Abu Mousab Al Zarqawi. The city was completely held hostage in the hands of his henchmen. Our schools, governmental services, businesses and offices were closed. Our streets were silent, and no one dared to walk them. Our people were barricaded in their homes out of fear; death awaited them around every corner. Terrorists occupied and controlled the only hospital in the city. Their savagery reached such a level that they stuffed the corpses of children with explosives and tossed them into the streets in order to kill grieving parents attempting to retrieve the bodies of their young. This was the situation of our city until God prepared and delivered unto them the courageous soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who liberated this city, ridding it of Zarqawi’s followers after harsh fighting, killing many terrorists, and forcing the remaining butchers to flee the city like rats to the surrounding areas, where the bravery of other 3d ACR soldiers in Sinjar, Rabiah, Zumar and Avgani finally destroyed them."

Why has this NOT made news? Why is a GOOD story, about our soldiers who are doing a VALIANT and AMAZING job -- not included in reporting by the NY Times, or Washington Post, in a way that YOU WOULD EVEN know that this letter existed?
