Editorial: The photo avoided

Does a documented meeting take place if the press works overtime to pretend it didn't?

That photo went up at the English language website The Common Ills last Sunday.

It had been posted by Nouri al-Maliki's office at Nouri's website.  

But you'd think it had been covered in Kryptonite and buried beneath the sea by the way the meeting and the photo were 'disappeared' and ignored by the western media.

That's General Lloyd Austin in the photo.

What is he doing meeting with Nouri?

Might it have something to do with repeated reports that Nouri is comfortable bring more US troops into Iraq?

If so, that photo above would be not only news worthy but also historic.

So why are the press ignoring it?
