Yet More In-Depth Reporting from the New York Times

In a story today titled ‘A Sunni Bloc Pulls Back on Rejoining Iraqi Cabinet’ that appeared under Richard Oppel’s byline from Baghdad, the NYTimes tells us that Sunni leader Adnan Dulaimi, even though he’s pleased with prime minister’s broader political steps, has signaled that the Sunni Tawafiq ‘Consensus’ bloc may extend its yearlong boycott of the Maliki cabinet.

What the NYTimes reporter failed to report on was that yesterday the Iraqi parliament decided to apply amnesty laws to several ‘lawmakers’ who’ve been accused of misdemeanors and crimes instead of revoking their parliamentary immunity, but that amnesty was not applicable to Dulaimi, the single source in Oppel’s report, because his crime was “terrorism.”

So Dulaimi’s sudden coyness may have something to do with bargaining for deferred imprisonment; I just think that this detail would have been pertinent to the paper’s storyline, that is, if the NYTimes were in the business of reporting what’s really going on.

The NY Times slanting their news coverage and/or being sloppy in their reporting?

It's become almost a daily occurrence.

We haven't been hearing too much about Ayatollah Al-Sistani's supposed anti-Amercian fatwa lately, have we?

And since when have we ever known Nancy Pelosi to be this quiet on Iraq, espacially after just returning from a week-long trip there. Can there be any better indicator than her silence that things are, in fact, improving there? LOL!!!

Keep on keepin' 'em honest, Nibras!

Let's not forget that the reason he pulled out in the first place was that he felt the government was unfairly targeting Sunnis and he wants to extend because he's not getting what he wanted in negotiations. The former is a civil war in the making, the latter is just politics as usual. That to me is a huge step forward. Now if only Pelosi, Reid, and Obama could see that.
