US 1, NY Times 0

The US killed another high-ranking Al Qaeda in Iraq leader, Abu Usama al-Tunisi. Brig. Gen. Joseph Anderson explained that "Al-Tunisi was a leader in helping bring foreign terrorists into the country."

The party line at the New York Times is that this group is a "homegrown Sunni Arab extremist group" that "is not part of the Qaeda network." That might be why the New York Times buried mention of al Tunisi in paragraph 17 of their story, the only NYT story on al Tunisi according to a google news search, and then omit all mention of his being foreign and his recruiting foreign terrorists.
