Say What?

Front page, Section C, Philadelphia Inquirer, today, June 23, 2008...

PROGRESS IN IRAQ - As violence wanes, growing popular sentiment in Iraq suggests a more stable and peaceful future.

The lead story is by columnist Kevin Ferris who calls his column "Back Channels". The money quote...

It seems Iraqis have decided that al-Qaeda, not America, is the "foremost enemy." That al-Qaeda, not America, had come to fight the people of Iraq. That al-Qaeda, not America, was the enemy of Muslims and their holy places.

You might hope such good news to be on the front page of section A. I suppose the Back Channels and obscure blogs are all it deserves. At least it being printed - that's a start.
