Page Sixteen News?

Esposa found this story buried on page 16 of the Dallas Morning News – Sky News: Sailors And Marines Seized. Yahoo News has the story buried under News>World>Middle East. I guess page 1 is reserved for status updates on Angelina Jolie’s new Vietnamese baby.

AoS blogged it yesterday here. I guess their hostage taking president didn’t feel comfortable stepping on US soil while, yet again holding hostages to further his apocalyptic agenda.

Maybe I’ve been to focused on basketball and missed the outrage. Anybody out there seen the outrage on this one? Guess it’s really not front page news because the Brits didn’t kill any women and children.

Update: Ken Shepherd over at Newsbusters makes the same point here, much more articulately than I. What he said!

    This may be the case for the Americans, but these are our people! They where out tehere in the first place to secure our safety. They put them selves in danger for the welfare of thier country and it’s people.
    No we didn’t kill any women or children, but people need to know of the outrage happeninh in our world! The world that is trying to achieve and contain peace? Blasphomy!
