Hindsight is always 20/20

Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi is not even a week dead, and already the media is eagerly rewriting history to bolster their own ideological agenda.

This morning’s Boston Globe has a story about how Zarqawi didn’t really have much support among the Arab world. You see, the rank and file Muslims were repulsed by his tactics and atrocities. They just didn’t speak up before now because…

um…

Well, I’m sure they had their reasons.

In all fairness, some Muslims did speak out against Zarqawi. The families of those killed in the Jordanian wedding bombings have been outspoken for some time. What’s really new is the prominence their criticisms are being given in the media.

It’s almost as if the media is trying to downplay and diminish the significance of killing Zarqawi, about a half-dozen of his top supporters, and uncovering a veritable treasure trove of intelligence. But that would be presuming that the media has some kind of interest in not seeing good news for the US out of Iraq…
