Finally. Now we are on to the right path. I agree with you Joe...and Daniel, thank you for pointing out something so encouraging...that we are learning.

I have maintained for a long time now that the open-source nature of Democracy with free press was far more powerful than that of the enemy's. But the critical element is the free press, the communication and information sharing, which this is where the MSM has really let us all down. And this is why I have been so dismayed with the media because the masses make decision based on the information that is provided, and all the media has done, for the most part, with the pre-911 thinking and anti- Bush and anti-American rhetoric, is to confuse the issue and divide the masses of Patriotic Americans. So try to imagine how the rest of the world sees this whole thing, given that they are actually looking to the USA for leadership.

This is why the MSM's broadcasts have further magnifies the problems we face on the global front due to two factors: (1) the Islamists quote the media in order to legitimize their own distorted ends, and (2) the rest of the world, especially the non-Muslim world gets the US (and British) MSM media reports fed straight through to them as fact. So the rest of the world sees Americans in a poor light as a direct result of the US MSM broadcasting a continually obtuse message.

Again, this is great news, folks. Adapt and overcome!
