“They came, they saw, they lost. And now they’re saying they won.”

The Independent’s Robert Fisk has put his poison pen to paper once again to ridicule the US pullout of Iraq. We take a look at his article as well as a more positive spin on things in the Wall Street Journal. Elsewhere, we look at international coverage of the French deportation of the Roma and a moving piece in the International Herald Tribune on the devastation in Pakistan’s Indus Valley. FRIDAY, 20th AUGUST 2010
