    Wouldn't putting this in mainstream news put our boys in more danger? This situation is unique.
    If they'd found it in a bunker, I'd say the media should be sued if they DON'T report it on the front page. But this is a situation where the insurgents didn't quite know thier own strength, it might be bad to be basically telling them "That was a pretty dangerous weapon, we're sure glad you used it wrong, and hope you don't learn how to use any more you might have."

    The morons who set the device are probably now looking back saying "Let's see what other goodies Saddam left us!"

    Hey, now someones thinking! Im sure we've found WMD's but they have been classified for security reasons. This side of the arguement never gets on the table since Libs would never dream of doing something like protecting the troops at their own expense. It would never cross their minds.

    I agree with not mentioning specifics in the interest of security, but you won't even see a vague passing mention. That would give some credence to the "crazed, rabid, neo-conservative hawks and Bushies" (like me for example) who actually WANTED us to invade.


    God forbid they actually acknowledge that they Bush Cheney Imperialistic monstrosity said or did anything true and correct.

    It would be too hard for TV writers to find ways to back out of the WMD jokes gracefully.

    It would be funny to see if any of these media bungholes to mention it with "Exclusive information gained by [media outlet here] concludes that there are indeed WMD's in Iraq".
