Of course not. I was just wondering if it was possible others were involved but that the US version of events conveniently ignored them, and if this would have been a as much of a story in the US news had no one from the US been involved. Also, no, I wasn't "huimblebragging" but just commenting on my occasional dislike of US-centric media coverage. As I said, though, it's understandable that every country has it's own bias in how news is reported and stories about a country's own citizen are going to get more coverage in their country.
