The alleged truth about how Private Jessica Lynch was saved.
This is a pretty amazing story, coming originally from the BBC and now a front page story on the Guardian. There's a program on it on BBC on Sunday.

Story courtesy of Karlin Lillington, where I picked it up.

Yet another rehashing of what was previously seen here among other places. (And both of these "amazing" stories are pretty much exactly the same as what's been in all the mainstream media since a day or two after the rescue took place.

Worth reposting, and proof of why Bush/Cheney will finally get elected for another 4 years of nation-raping.

She was trapped in a well, right?

The doctors and nurses REALLY wanted to get her back into friendly hands, but when they tried, they were attacked by American soldiers so they had to turn back to the hospital. Uh huh.

Oh, and the doctors and nurses treated her so kindly - she was like a daughter to them! - they treated her so kindly that she has repressed the entire experience from her memory.

I thought leftists were supposed to be smart.
