Dear NPR, thanks for playing... you can take your consolation prize, and no points for effort, and go play with the Enquirer now.

An NPR report on the second helicopter shoot-down, which report I listened to with my own ears, went like this:

It demonstrated that the Iraqi resistance is now able to challenge American domination of the skies over Baghdad.
This is possibly one of the single most ignorant things I have ever heard stated as a fact on any "news" report.

NPR can no longer be considered a reliable source for anything regarding Iraq, or foreign or military affairs. I am simply speechless.
