Fingers were crossed

Testifying before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Kevin Tillman claimed that United States government officials created a heroic story about the death of his brother Cpl. Pat Tillman (pictured below) to distract attention from setbacks in Iraq and the mistreatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib.

Former Pvt. Jessica Lynch (pictured below) leveled similar criticism today at the hearing about the initial accounts given by the Army of her capture and rescue in Iraq.

In her testimony this morning, she said she did not understand why the Army put out a story that she went down firing at the enemy.

Perhaps she felt this was an infinitely better time to come out with this admission, than when she was posing (pictured below) in front of the poster of the 2003 movie version of “Saving Jessica Lynch”.

This is absolutely crazy.

Next they are going to try to tell us that John Rambo (pictured below) did not, as we were told, single handedly take out the Taliban stronghold at Tora Bora and save Princess Leia.


Now I don't know who to believe.

ok, sorry if I am shallow but Tillman was one fine looking soldier. Probably all the better and more effective to create a gargantuan fabrication around, works in the movies!!!! Glad the brother came out and told the truth.

The sickening motives of our govt in both instances makes me physically ill.

It shows how low this administration will stoop in the name of use people that only did their duty.

Impeach these bastards before more innocents can be used..and many killed in the name of Bush's war.
