Did I just say something about lack of media coverage?

Yahoo! News - Iraqi Fisherman Says He Caught Americans

I wonder why??

excerpt...."The last successful attack was Aug. 7 outside Ramadi, when they attacked a Humvee using a rocket-propelled grenade and fled without checking on casualties, he said.

Thurmond confirmed a Humvee was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade in that area on that day. He said there were no casualties, adding that soldiers searched unsuccessfully for the attackers.

There had been no public mention of the incident.

But "Salahuddin" also described an attack a month ago that he said killed seven Americans and wounded three. He said a Humvee that wasn't hit sped away and didn't return for the wounded for three hours. He prevented his comrades from killing the injured men because Islam forbids it, he said.

The United States hasn't reported more than three soldiers killed in any attack since the war..."
