Reuters’ Anti-US Spin

From James Taranto:

Reuters, meanwhile, carries what should be an upbeat story about American soldiers teaching Iraqi orphans to play football, but can’t resist throwing in this anti-American non sequitur: “None of the boys asked to play was orphaned as a result of the U.S.-led invasion in which an unknown number of Iraqi civilians were killed. U.S. efforts to restore order since the end of the war have floundered and postwar guerrilla attacks in which 80 U.S. soldiers have died have left troops wary of contact with locals.”
