Al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia says New Amsterdam Times

“The U.S. command said… the highest-ranking Iraqi in the leadership of al-Qaida in Iraq has been arrested, adding that information from him indicates the group’s foreign-based leadership wields considerable influence over the Iraqi chapter,’ the Associated Press reports. That’s al Qaeda in Iraq or, as the New York Times calls it, al Qaeda Which Has Nothing to Do With Iraq in Mesopotamia Which Also Has Nothing to Do With Iraq Even Though It’s Another Name for Iraq Which Has Nothing to Do With al Qaeda, a Homegrown Iraqi Group That Has Nothing to Do With Iraq Even Though It Is Mostly Iraqi, Albeit With Some Foreign Involvement Which Has Nothing to Do With Iraq.” —James Taranto

If the New York Times finds it fitting to refer to Iraq by its former name of Mesopotamia, is itnot just as appropriate then that we start referring to the “Gray Lady” as the New Amsterdam Times?
