Terrorism Down, ABCNBCCBSCNN Ignore

The State Deparment has released its new report on Patterns of Global Terrorism, and wouldn't you know, terrorism is down. But you won't hear it on the news. Nope, they have to continue the charade that Bush is bad, Bush lied, Bush hasn't made us safer... . Here's the choice part:

There were 190 acts of international terrorism in 2003, a slight decrease from the 198 attacks that occurred in 2002, and a drop of 45 percent from the level in 2001 of 346 attacks. The figure in 2003 represents the lowest annual total of international terrorist attacks since 1969.

A total of 307 persons were killed in the attacks of 2003, far fewer than the 725 killed during 2002. A total of 1,593 persons were wounded in the attacks that occurred in 2003, down from 2,013 persons wounded the year before.

I won't wait for Dan Rather to cover this.
