Less-Than-Informative News

Linda Gradstein with Howard Schneider writes in today's Washington Post:

On the Israeli side, it is seen as more than a coincidence that suicide bombings
declined as the barrier snaked its way through the West Bank. The last one was
18 months ago.
Now, that sounds convincing, and comforting, right?


The question is: have suicide bombing attempts dropped off? how many attempts have been halted? have they been stopped at the barrier or way before, at checkpoints which have now been removed?

The news is lacking depth, perspective and is less-than-informative.
