The real story of the insurgency is the fact that Iraqis form the bulk of the resistance, not foreign fighters. This fact is largely obscured by American propaganda for obvious reasons.

The Washington Post reports.

UPDATE: The vast resources of the MSM can sometimes bear fruit. The New York Times explains the vast corruption and nepotism in “liberated” Iraq. The West have imported “disaster capitalism” in all its glory:

“In what is expected to be the first of a series of criminal charges against officials and contractors overseeing the rebuilding of Iraq, an American has been charged with paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and kickbacks to American occupation authorities and their spouses to obtain construction contracts, according to a complaint unsealed late yesterday.”
