For that matter, I'm calling shenanigans on the story of Private Lynch as well, that POW that we "freed" during the "war" in Iraq. The extent to which our government will go to increase patriotism is outrageous. Don't like the Guardian? Read the Beeb's article about it instead.
"Next year, al-Jazeera plans to begin broadcasting in English. The images it shows may come as a shock to many Americans. In view of what they are usually shown, such a shock seems needed."
Sometimes I wonder if the government is simply the puppet of some sort of underground cult group bent on world domination by old white men. But that couldn't possibly be true. Poppycock!
