Reuters strikes again

Troops to stay in Iraq despite 'progress'


By Charles Aldinger 2 hours, 49 minutes ago
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Despite reported successes against the insurgency in Iraq, a top U.S. military commander said on Tuesday the United States was unlikely to begin reducing its 135,000 troops there before elections late this year


Scare quotes, spin, 'reported successes'. Got to love Reuters for a fair and balanced story. Lets see how long it stays in this form up on Yahoo's main page, they have been pretty good about getting these things changed when people start complaining. They have lots of experience trying to carry Reuters and AP headlines, thats certain. The ironic part is, they point to the possible military drawdown as something that anyone was seriously considering before the end of this year. Nothing like spinning good news as bad news. Thanks Reuters, now go round up some more jihadis to string for you.
