Was not the reporter under the duty to hand over this tape to military authorities,under the rules of imbeds? If that's the case then strong measures should be taken against Sites. Also has Sites been removed from that Marine unit,because at this point i"m sure his presence is a distraction to the Marines and therefore endangers their lives. Sites has to be removed from that unit at the very least.
more along the lines that Mr. Sites life is in danger being around the Marines... I think the pentagon should revoke his embed privilages for his own safety.
I sincerely hope... But I'd rather the Marines dish out the justice.
Turn Sites over to the terrorist.
That tape should have gone to DOD for vetting first!!
The real question seems to be whether the tape has been edited for broadcast in a way that changes its interpretation.
I hope so.
The MSM's treatment of this war as just another "reality show" is dangerous for our troops.
No need for anything overt. Unfortunate things happen in combat zones, and if the reporter fails to hear someone yell "Sniper!!", well, c'est la guerre.
But really would the military remove Sites, or do we have to worry that he's still there with them?
Could be rabbit, could be...! :)
Yes, I think that's the way to go. He has abused his privilege of being embedded with the Marines. I think he's slimy, but we really, really don't want to suppress the press. Remember, Hillary or her ilk could get slither back into the WH and I want intense press scrutiny on every aspect of that administration.
exactly, Hillary's administration (it won't happen, but IF...for the sake of argument) would make Johnson's and Harding's look like saintly times...
Korrupt Klintoon Kommie Kriminal she is (learning FR speak, taking a crash course for newbies :-)
That he is there for anti-US propaganda, and not to report the news is raTHer obvious. To protect our service men, he should be pulled from embedded work.
The US attorney general may be able to charge him with sedition.
Should we encourage that?
Remember that name.

I would certainly hope so.
The sorry bastard would have been jumping with joy if the murdering sob had managed to kill some Marines.
Our troops are not apes or baboons escaped from some zoo as the American hating socialists [members og the media and democrats] want us to believe.
They are brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, sons, daughters,fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and grand children. Each one has a face and name.
In fact, this young Marine could have been the son of some of the members of this forum.
At this point in time he is probably going through a personal hell which I believe is unnecessary.Because he did not do anything anyone on this forum would not have done under the circumstances. He took the action he felt necessary to protect his life.
He not only needs, he deserves our support and help.
Every embedded reporter needs to be withdrawn immediately is the most delicate way I can say it.
"Kevin, LOOK! In that bullet-ridden mosque across the street, 20 marines are torturing and humiliating an unarmed, wounded, helpless, armless, legless Iraqi prisoner! You should go inside and film it... we're just gonna wait here in our armored humvee while you get the scoop, ok?"
