Now Sites is saying that the guy that was shot last week wasn't moving at all! You can't have it five different ways like your idol, John Kerry.

With the wearing of C4 having become almost a fission statement it's a wonder more insurgents haven't been killed on the spot.

"And the MSM will report on this . . . uhhh . . . when?"

Now, now. Have some patience. I'm sure that our integrity-laden MSM will be reporting this as soon as they have all the facts in hand. You don't want them to rush this story out there without making sure its absolutely true do you? Don't you realize that the MSM has a responsibility in taking great care when considering reporting something that could create an anti-Muslim backlash here in America or could somehow influence public opinion one way or another? I'm sure that they have video, even, and it will be aired as soon as they are done making it ready for television---probably tonight's nightly news on all three networks.

/sarcasm

He should go into these houses first to clear them out. If no terrorists are faking, he will not be killed.

This kind of stuff has been happening since day one. Sad that, due to irresponsible journalists, our military has to issue press releases to highlight the enemy tactics.

The terrorists watch the news. Now they've adapted to the Sites video and are training the others to try to take advantage of the troops. My suggestion is that the military now start calling this despicable tactic, the SITES manuever, after its author, in all its reports , press conferences and training manuals. That way, Kevin Sites action is seen for what it is- aiding and abetting terrorists. Moreover, that's how to ensure the scumbag will be remembered, a quisling. It's also a daily reminder to the troops that journalists are the enemies of the American military.

F###K Sites and his excuses. This is a perfect example of why you put a round into every one of the pigs. Shoot the rat bas-turds, and let God sort it out it. One rule for the marines: COME HOME SAFE TO YOUR FAMILIES AND A GRATEFUL NATION!

Good idea. Troops should be briefed that reporters are not their friends.

I suggest, in the future, if a camera is in the same room as one of these incidents, the second bullet is aimed at the camera. If the camera man happens to have the camera up to his eye, oh well.

We the people look forward to the MSM obtaining video, and putting it into heavy rotataion, for the next week.

Dan Rather asks WWSD (What Would Saddam Do)


Rather: "Tell me, oh dark lord master, should we run this video?"
Saddam: "Not if you want Arafats pin numbers"

What if the headline read:

"Insugents Faking Dead Shoot and Kill Cameraman and Reporter."

Would Chris Matthews and the MSM have to explore the "root causes", ad nauseum?

BRAVO!

My suggestion is that GW comes on TV to declare that, due to the HORRENDOUS interference by the Marxist-Stream-Media, all terrorist/"insurgent" areas will be cleared by the "2 in the hat" method for ALL bodies...wounded or not!

Since the Terrorists are now using the SITES maneuver, in CLEAR violation of their precious "Geneva Convention", there will be no traetment/care for wounded, and the "dead" will be treated like Unexploded Ordinances.

Oh, BTW...we are dipping ALL our munitions in the drippings from a good 'ol PIG ROAST!

See how eager these Islamazis would be THEN to play soldier...

Now that Sites and the MSM have made this non-issue into a rallying point for the Moose Limbs and Al Jezeera, and caused the hatred to boil up even more, the terrorists are confident that our troops have been scolded and chastised and told to be more "sensitive" to potential dead terrorists pretending not to be.

Thank you Sites and the MSM for placing our troops into more danger. I hope you sleep well at night.

There are international rules and global tests that prohibit such out of line behavior.

" Marines from the 1st Marine Division shot and killed an insurgent, who while faking dead, opened fire on the Marines "

No story here.

It's only a story when the U.S. doesn't lay down and let itself be kicked repeatedly in the jewels.

This isn't the first time the scum of the earth has pulled this stunt.

This should completely exonerate the Marine who killed a terrorist in a war on terror last week.

Do Sites and the liberals think the terrorists aren't watching the hand-wringing, pro-terrorist reactions that went on in the media last week?

The blood of our brave heroes is on their hands.

Coming from CentCom, this is a good indication that the Marine being investigated will suffer no ill effects from the military.
