Wake up, folks!

All the major TV stations and newspapers saw fit to give wide coverage to the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal involving (some) of our military personnel. Yet – the recent account of U.S. Special Forces, in a daring rescue of hostages, was only reported on a couple of cable channels – and even relegated to page A6 in The Union – the following day! Kinda speaks volumes, don’t it?
