"Will the American media report this? It occurred five days ago; the military put out a press release on it yesterday.
A Google search on Rawaniyah shows only a few hits from blogs.
It's not too late for journalists in Iraq or their editors here in the US to report on a hopeful sign of ground-up reconciliation in the Iraqi capital.
