Why aren't the reporters flooding into Iraq to show us first hand the surge success?
You think they would all be there standing in the recently safe streets with camera crews in tow showing off McCains success. Wouldn't you? Why isn't Fox news and Geraldo over there with his little pistol doing man in the street interviews?

Why the lack of coverage if everything is going so swimmingly.

I will tell you why. The pictures would not reflect what we are being told to believe. That is why.
