THE MARINES: A Few Good PR Men.

So, as it turns out, that ABC after school special was not the first to misrepresent Pvt. Jessica Lynch's story. The Pentagon beat them to it:

"There was no [sign of] shooting, no bullet inside her body, no stab wound - only road traffic accident. They want to distort the picture. I don't know why they think there is some benefit in saying she has a bullet injury."

Witnesses told us that the special forces knew that the Iraqi military had fled a day before they swooped on the hospital.

"We were surprised. Why do this? There was no military, there were no soldiers in the hospital," said Dr Anmar Uday, who worked at the hospital.

"It was like a Hollywood film. They cried 'go, go, go', with guns and blanks without bullets, blanks and the sound of explosions. They made a show for the American attack on the hospital - action movies like Sylvester Stallone or Jackie Chan."

....

Sorry, I'm a little slow on this kind of news. Not having a TV, I have to admit I've lost touch with Diane Sawyer.
