What if newspapers hadn’t bothered to report the attack on Pearl Harbor?
No need to muse about that hard-to-believe alt-history scenario because, as Mark Steyn writes, that’s exactly what happened two weeks ago:
…on Sept. 14, fewer than two dozen inbred, illiterate goatherds pulled off the biggest single destruction of U.S. airpower since the Tet Offensive in 1968, breaking into Camp Bastion (an unfortunate choice of name) in Afghanistan, killing Lieutenant-Colonel Christopher Raible, and blowing up a squadron’s worth of Harriers.
And, even though it was the third international humiliation for the United States in as many days, it didn’t even make the papers.
Because the court eunuchs at the media are too busy drooling over Obama’s appearance as what he calls “eye candy” on the couch between Barbara and Whoopi.
