Poster boys

One of today's press releases from Multinational Forces Iraq -- hot on the heels of their success in declaring an elusive opponent to be imaginary:

Coalition Forces captured a suspected terrorist with close ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF) in a raid Thursday in Kharnabat near Baqubah.

No shots were fired when Coalition Forces conducted a raid to capture or kill a highly-sought operative with connections to senior leaders of the IRGC-QF. The captured terrorist is suspected of facilitating the transport of weapons and personnel from Iran into Iraq. The captured terrorist is also believed to have facilitated the flow of deadly Explosively Formed Projectiles (EFPs) into Iraq from Iran to be used against Coalition Forces.

During the raid, Coalition Forces confiscated a large sum of U.S. currency, weapons and photographs of juveniles with weapons.


That's 4 Iran mentions in a few sentences. But anyway, note the emphasis on the evilitude of the operative in having pictures of juveniles with weapons. Couldn't happen in America, let alone be endorsed by a prominent right-wing blogger. Indeed.
