Good Quote

If the first casualty of war is the truth then what happens when the wound is self inflicted. Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va).

As heard on NPR this morning. Rep. Davis made this comment at the hearings about the army's lies about the death of Pat Tilman and the capture an subsequent rescue of Pvt. Jessica Lynch. You remember Tilman, of course, and probably recognize Lynch's name. She's the cute blond private from West Virginia (I think) that was captured when her convoy in Iraq was attacked. The Army told us she was a lady-Rambo firing on the enemy until she ran out of ammo. She says she never fired a shot. It also came out that her rescue at an Iraqi hospital was delay by a day so the army could video tape it.

If this government and our army refuses to tell us the truth about the death of soldiers how are we to trust them about anything? What else are they lying to us about?
