The month of September has certainly not been quiet on the Iraqi front, yet there seems to be a lack of coverage on election obsessed US networks.

Over the past month, more than 2,300 attacks have been directed against civilians and military targets in Iraq, in a pattern that sprawls over nearly every major population center outside the Kurdish north, according to comprehensive data compiled by a private security company with access to military intelligence reports and its own network of Iraqi informants. ...

The type of attacks ran the gamut: car bombs, time bombs, rocket-propelled grenades, hand grenades, small-arms fire, mortar attacks and land mines. ...

"If you look at incident data and you put incident data on the map, it's not a few provinces, ...

the number of attacks is not an accurate measure of control in Falluja. Attacks have recently dropped there, but the town is controlled by insurgents and is a "no go" zone for the U.S. military and Iraqi security forces. ...

"The question is not whether there are attacks," said one Pentagon official. "Of course there are. But what are the proper measurements for progress?"... more

I guess the "proper measurements for progress" are what the "War" pResident and Allawi say it is.

Edit: ... and ... September ain't over yet!!!!

There's a definite downplay concerning the media on Iraq. Attacks on British forces went from just 7 in July to 853 in August and they're supposed to be patrolling the more 'welcoming' part of Iraq.

I guess the question is whether or not it is by accident or design. We are getting fairly good coverage here in Canada.

I would not be surprised if news about Iraq, especially bad news, will be kept off the front page until after the US election.
