IS THE "WE BOMBED AN IRAQI WEDDING PARTY" ANOTHER ANTI-WAR MEDIA HOAX ?
Somehow, if these details are accurate
, it's not surprising the mainstream media is not following up on this story any more than on Nick Berg. They want it off the radar ASAP.
Juan Cole chided the Bush administration for not apologizing for the incident. What they should apologize for is being incompetent at getting out information that helps the war effort. It's amazing that an administration that can be so "on message " regarding domestic politics can also show little if any grasp of the need for effective public diplomacy. The media is not going to do it for them - they can count on a particularly negative spin up through November on every issue but on the war most of all.
