Lindsey Hilsum is a woman, fuckwits. She works for Channel 4 News which I'm sure you all really hate.
BTW, after the fall of Baghdad, when she wasn't imbedded, her team came across a group of US Soldiers who had been shooting at some cars that were approaching their positions. They wouldn't let the TV crews interpreter approach the vehicles, which were near a housing area. They argued, being liberal types and the translator ran over to the cars. He came back with a little girl, maybe 5 or 6 years old, who had been shot in the head.
The US soldiers, being human beings, then took the little girl away. Lindsey later tracked her down to Kuwait weeks later, where the US medical team had patched her up and she was alive, and with her father, who had also been missing.
Maybe she told some of the marines this, and that's why I saw them protecting her the other day when they were pinned down on a roof. I also imagine that if you tried to wish a horrible death upon her in front of one of those marines, you would be picking teeth out of your shit for the next two weeks.
Why, then, does she write so condescendingly of her protectors?
Please watch your language. This isn't DU.
Lindsey can be a man or a woman's name in the U.S. And most of us (thankfully) don't get the U.K.'s Channel 4 News in the U.S., so we wouldn't know. CBS and CNN are bad enough.
You should try rereading the article you creep. Her sympathies clearly do not lie with our troops.
