Oops, Brian, a wee bit of bias showing?
Brian Shields over at The Bay Area is Talking might have let slip a tad bit of bias with this one:

"...within the context of trying to define good and bad news coming from the US Occupation..."

Invasion, conquest, and control of a nation or territory by foreign armed forces.
The military government exercising control over an occupied nation or territory.

Sorry Brian, but unless I am completely mistaken the "occupation" ended when the Iraqi people elected their government and became sovereign on January 30th of this year. Technically we're visiting forces at this point. And before we argue semantics, let me point out that capitalizing the word "occupation" in the middle of a sentence gives it an air of a proper title rather than an action therefore further biasing the sentence.
A Republican in San Francisco (Yes, he's under deep cover) relays his tales of interest... ...ok, "interest" is a strong and subjective word but you get the point.
