"Yet another massacre by the coalition of invaders," blared the front-page headline yesterday in the Al Riyadh daily of Saudi Arabia.

The Arab based news world is creating a huge anti-American sentiment throughout the world with their biased reporting and horrific images of the war in Iraq.
The United States is losing support all over the world and even here in the U.S. due to the reporting going on in the Middle East.

"You don't lose the propaganda war one week or the next," said a senior U.S. official responsible for shaping outreach efforts to the Arab world. "You win the propaganda war by doing the right thing. In the end, people will see that we have done the right thing."

Domestically here in the United States the news networks are trying to stay supportive of the Bush Administration and the war in Iraq but are increasingly losing the battle. "Operation Iraqi Freedom” is losing the “propaganda” war here at home and Especially in the rest of the world. Al Jazeera and other “Arab” based networks are winning the war, at least in the hearts and minds of many all over the world.
