I was hanging out with some friends last night and got bored, so I decided to check CNN on my cell phone, as I like to see what the MSM is pushing out
every now and then.
One particular story caught my eye: "Iranian Embassy Employees Shot in Baghdad".
I quickly read over the article because I knew that a situation like this couldn't be good at all for the growing tensions between us and Iran (and
if this happened in Iraq, I just assume we had a hand in it). The article goes on to say that 5 embassy officials and one Iraqi were shot in a convoy
by Iraqi forces. It also goes on to say that Iran blames the U.S. for this "terrorist attack". Not good.
So I decide to check CNN again this morning, because I assume that this is a huge story, only to find it buried inside the World Page...not even on
the front page of the site.
Am I the only one that thinks this is a serious event that could be the precursor for future aggression? I guess the government and the MSM prefer
that we not bring attention to this event....
