Winning Dead Hearts and Minds

Mike Whitney tells us 93 children and 25 adult women were killed in an U.S. airstrike on the Afghan village of Bala Baouk.

The youngest was an eight-day-old baby.

Whitney notes that, “Neither Obama nor anyone in his administration has acknowledged that 93 children were killed,” because they're too busy winning hearts and minds to notice.

That’s progress for you. Now we conduct a My Lai from the air. It’s neater that way.

It helps that our supine media doesn’t bother to rush any photojournalists into the area to record the carnage.

What carnage?

The media are doing a great job keeping us informed about the issues that truly matter to us- Who won the American Idol coveted prize. Who is the best dancer/entertainer on Dancing with the Stars and the latest news from all those expertly opinionated columnists.

Now if you'll excuse me I've got to put my head back where it was...

The lead story this morning is who won "Idol." My follow up is, "Who cares?"
