Jessica Lynch: The American people "don't need to be told elaborate lies."

@ 09:57 PM (95 months, 16 days ago)

When will the military begin leveling with the American people?  And more importantly, when will they begin leveling with the families of our fallen soldiers?

Today, an Army Ranger told the House Reform and Government Oversight Committee that they were ordered to keep quiet about what really happened to Pat Tillman when he was killed in Afghanistan.  Army Spc. Bryan O'Neal said he was also ordered not to tell Tillman's brother what happened.

Jessica Lynch also testifed before the Committee, and help set the record straight about what happened to her in Iraq when her convoy was ambushed.  The military, with the media's help, embelleshed the story of Lynch's ambush, and today, Lynch said "The bottom line is the American people are capable of determining their own ideals of heroes and they don't need to be told elaborate lies."

  4. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It\'s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a
    lot more useful than ever before.

  8. Everything posted made a ton of sense. However,
    what about this? suppose you typed a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don\'t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something that
    grabbed people\'s attention? I mean Jessica Lynch:
    The American people \"don\'t need to be told elaborate lies.\" - Progressive Minds
    is a little vanilla. You might look at Yahoo\'s front page and see
    how they create post headlines to get viewers interested.

    You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything\'ve got to
    say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
