Has there been any more on the mass exodus out of Baghdad...
...by all Iraqi officials and police, as reported by MSNBC yesterday? I wonder if the press has been instructed to stay quiet about it.

2. I haven't heard a peep about it since last night.
I guess the exodus is complete. No Iraqi police left to go, and only as many Iraqis as COULDN'T get out.

4. MSGOP wouldn't have reported it if it wasn't eminently obvious

It might make the admin look bad.

5. fair enough
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 08:32 PM by agitpropagent9
but why haven't they followed up on it? iraq has more foreign journalists in it this weekend than it's had probably at any other time in history. wouldn't someone, somewhere be reporting it?

i mean, i'm not saying it's not happening, but i would think that the bbc or someone would be on top of it.

8. It's Ramadi. Apparently no one expects them to vote anyways.
The LA Times reporter last night said that even Saddam couldn't control Ramadi.

9. No idea.
I just assume it's very chaotic over there. I'm sure we'll hear what happened in the aftermath.

6. It was Ramadi, not Baghdad. Ramadi is twice the size of Fallujah.
I heard an interview with an LA Times reporter last night. He said that everyone, including the governor, was not showing up for work. I think there was an error in the original reporting on Baghdad.

7. Aha! You're right!
Nonetheless.. We're not hearing much about THAT today either.
