Countering the Spin

This week, rather than cover what goes on inside the Republican National Convention, I want to continue something I started last week. I will try to highlight stories that counter the cyclonic spin put on world events by the Republicans.

Yesterday delegates in NYC heard how wonderfully aWol has prosecuted the War on Terror. Today we see this:

An Iraqi militant group said it had killed 12 Nepali hostages and showed pictures on an Islamist Web site on Tuesday of one of them being beheaded.

"We have carried out the sentence of God against 12 Nepalis who came from their country to fight the Muslims and to serve the Jews and the Christians...believing in Buddhah [sic] as their God," said the statement by the military committee of the Army of Ansar al-Sunna.
Can you imagine how things would be going were he not paying attention?
