Rummy says we’re missing the good news – the insurgents Enemies of the Legally Elected Government have not blown up the oil fields! (the latter via Buzzflash) If the media would just stop “looking for drama” and reporting on US casualties, we’d recognize the progress in Iraq. And hey, says Rummy, let’s have a little perspective on this whole casualty count thing:

In remarks delivered at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies, Rumsfeld suggested that news organizations are reporting on deaths in Iraq because they are “looking for drama.”

At the same time, he said, they are not giving intense coverage to fatalities in the United States, where an average of 42,000 traffic deaths and 16,000 homicides take place each year.
