Oregonian has a VERY small paragraph buried within the war news that the
surrender of the Iraqi 51st is a lie - only two low level officers were
captured.

is there a way to see the small article about the 51st surrender being a lie. The Mass media often doesn't provide the reader with sources this site should. I love the site, but well documented sources and evidence of truth would make this site more credible.
