Gen. Abizaid Blasts Distorted Iraq War Coverage

I don't think that the media is going to listen to General Abizaid. they are going to continue to report only an alll the bad stuff going on in Iraq. they don't want the truth to get out that what Bush did is working. They are just hacks for the DNC. They want Kerry ro win in November andwill stop at nothing to get him elected.
Sunday, Sept. 26, 2004 12:54 a.m. EDT Gen. Abizaid Blasts Distorted Iraq War Coverage Centcom Commander General John Abizaid blasted Iraq war critics in Congress and the press on Sunday for focusing on isolated cases of bad news while ignoring the progress being made by the U.S. military in stabilizing the country."The constant drumbeat in Washington of a war that is being lost, that can't be won, of a resistance that is out of control, simply do not square with the facts on the ground," Abizaid told NBC's "Meet the Press." "We need to look at what's happening in the region, as opposed to the reports of one or two journalists that happen to think that everybody in Iraq is in the resistance," he explained. "If everybody in Iraq was in the resistance," the Centcom chief argued, "they wouldn't be volunteering for the armed forces. We've got over 100,000 people that are trained and equipped now. That number is going up higher. There is more people that are coming forward to fight for the future of Iraq than are fighting against it." Abizaid warned that the distorted press coverage is playing right into the hands of the terrorists, telling "Meet the Press," "Remember that the enemy wants to break our will. They are experts at manipulating the media."
