Meanwhile, In Iraq

While the lefties gush over Ahmanutjob, and think we should treat him with respect, cause he is such a nice guy, and they want to have a lesbian affair with him, more good news from Iraq gets completely overlooked by the left leaning MSM

Violence in Baghdad has been cut in half, thanks to a massive influx of new Iraqi police officers, a top U.S. military advisor said today.

“Along with the surge of U.S. forces is also the surge of Iraqi police,” Brig. Gen. David Phillips told online journalists and “bloggers” during a conference call from Baghdad.

As deputy commanding general of the Civilian Police Assistance Training Team, Phillips helped stand up the Baghdad Police Academy in January 2004. Yesterday, he watched 744 brand new officers graduate from that academy.

“A community (in) which in the past we saw a significant al Qaeda presence now has concerned local citizens come forward (to join) the police forces,” Phillips said. “You saw a lot of pride in these new police officers as they graduated.”

An additional 1,000 Iraqi police officers are set to graduate in a few days at a temporary academy set up in Abu Ghraib, just west of central Baghdad.

“We’re talking almost 2,000 new police officers … within two months,” Phillips said.

CNN? NY Times? PMSNBC? Washington Times? Hello? Beuller?

Applications to join Iraqi police forces far outnumber available positions, the general said, noting that nearly 6,000 Iraqi citizens applied for the two Baghdad-area academy classes.

“We’re having no problem filling all of these slots,” Phillips said. “If anything, we’re turning away literally hundreds if not thousands of people in some areas who want to join the police forces.”

Sounds like good news to me. How ’bout you?

Of course, in Liberal World, they will say that we are enabling the next generation of terrorists by denying some jobs, so they will not have health care. And it is all Bush’s fault.

    When you give a comparison as in “Baghdad casualties cut in half you really sure say exactly what that is in comparison to: last year’s month ? the highest number ever recorded ? otherwise the comparison loses meaning.
