Also at daily caller....the moderator was invited to the Obama’s wedding. Seems ABC thinks it is okay for her to moderate because she did not attend

Please ping this to military personnel who may have had contact with Martha Raddatz in Iraq, Afghanistan, or elsewhere. Details on why below.

I am not especially concerned about President Obama attending the wedding of a law school classmate to Martha Raddatz, especially considering that they're now divorced and the wedding took place back in 1991. We all know the Washington elite socialize with each other. I suspect we could also find similar relationships with lots of people on the conservative side of the Washington establishment who went to elite law schools or got an Ivy League education.

I'm more interested in Raddatz’s more recent activities.

She's a foreign affairs and war correspondent.

Here's a link to an article about her war coverage.

Unless she's a pure “talking head” who lets her assistants do most of the work prepping her to stand in front of the camera and talk (yes, that does happen in TV news, especially at the elite levels) she's probably spent a lot of time around the troops in Iraq and/or Afghanistan, and quite likely elsewhere.

That means she has almost certainly come into contact with Freepers or friends of Freepers.

Let's get some facts about how she treated troops and whether military personnel believed she was biased against them.

Free Republic is good at digging up that kind of info.
