What kind of headline would you expect newspapers nationwide to trumpet if America won the war in Iraq and destroyed al-Qaida there?

Maybe something like this? “VICTORY IN IRAQ! AL-QAIDA SMASHED!” Perhaps even old-fashioned newsboys on the street corners, yelling “Extra, extra! Vic’try in Iraq! Read all about it!”

Don’t hold your breath. You won’t see such headlines in American newspapers or leading network news broadcasts – even though, believe it or not, by all credible accounts America has indeed won the war in Iraq!

You see, the “mainstream press” isn’t really too excited about America winning the war right now. Why? It’s just bad timing: Success in Iraq doesn’t fit the media’s overriding agenda for the next couple months, which is to further discredit George W. Bush and Republicans, and to assure that Barack (“We must end this failed war”) Obama is elected president and as many Democrats as possible are installed in Congress, legislatures and statehouses nationwide.

There is, however, at least one media entity that is telling the whole story of America’s stunning success in Iraq, and that is WND’s elite monthly Whistleblower magazine, in the inspiring September edition, “VICTORY IN IRAQ!”

Ironically, 2008 is already becoming known as “the year the media died,” because of its astonishingly biased treatment of the two major presidential candidates – network anchor groupies tagging along with Obama on his European campaign trip while all but ignoring McCain; the New York Times running Obama’s op-ed on Iraq, but refusing to run McCain’s response the following week, and so on.

But there’s another area in which the media died this year – namely, coverage of the Iraq war.

Sure, while things were going terribly and it looked like America was losing, news coverage was constant – and unrelentingly negative. Bad news – IED attacks, political setbacks, accusations of atrocities on the part of U.S. soldiers, statements by Democrat leaders condemning the “failed” Iraq war – led the evening news night after night.

But recently, Americans haven’t heard very much about Iraq. Reason: The news is good. In fact, as “VICTORY IN IRAQ!” dramatically documents, the U.S. is winning – big-time.

When you read “VICTORY IN IRAQ!,” you’ll find out why:

  • Ryan Crocker, U.S. ambassador to Iraq, says, “Very clearly, the insurgency is in no position to overthrow the government or, really, even to challenge it.
  • A rare Associated Press story on America’s success in Iraq reveals: “In Baghdad, parks are filled every weekend with families playing and picnicking with their children. That was unthinkable only a year ago, when the first, barely visible signs of a turnaround emerged.
  • Army Col. Tom James, a brigade commander on his third combat tour in Iraq, says: “We’ve put out the forest fire. Now we’re dealing with pop-up fires.
  • Gen. David Petraeus’ says, “Attacks in Iraq hit a four-year low in mid-May and … Iraqi forces were finally taking the lead in combat and on multiple fronts at once – something that was inconceivable a year ago.
  • Independent embedded journalist and former Green Beret Michael Yon, reporting from the front lines, says, “By my estimation, the Iraq War is over. We won. Which means the Iraqi people won.”
  • Iraqi citizens who formerly were intimidated by al-Qaida atrocities into joining and protecting the terror group now take up arms and shoot al-Qaida terrorists in their midst, saying they’re sick and tired of the terror and are not going to take it anymore.

    Following are just a few highlights of the many articles – accompanied by amazing photos – in “VICTORY IN IRAQ!”:

    • “How the media bury victory” by David Kupelian, exposing how the “mainstream press” has managed to disguise the story of the year
    • “McCain’s rejected op-ed”: Now you can read Sen. John McCain’s gutsy editorial on Iraq policy which the New York Times refused to publish
    • “The surge in Iraq: 1 year later” by Lt. Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, in which America’s next senior commander in Iraq reveals how the tides of war turned
    • “U.S. soldiers befriend Iraqi children” by Matt Sanchez, describing from the front lines how Iraqi kids are unafraid of the “gentle giants” in their midst with body armor, dark glasses and weaponry
    • “Saddam’s forces boasted of moving WMD to Syria before war” by Ryan Mauro, whose interview with the former U.S. overseer of Iraqi prisons reveals that 40 incarcerated ex-military Iraqis confirm transport of Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction prior to invasion
    • “Don’t let the Democrats disenfranchise our troops” by Melanie Morgan. Believe it or not, once again America’s servicemen and women are in danger of having their votes not count this November. As one Marine official put it: “Thousands of service members who try to vote will do so in vain”
    • and much more

    “I think you will find this issue of Whistleblower enlightening and uplifting,” says WND founder and Editor Joseph Farah. “Sometimes it seems the news doesn’t give us much to smile about. The turnabout in Iraq should provide every American and every freedom-loving, peace-loving person in the world reason to cheer.”
