I'd be willing to bet the original picture was found at one of the U.S. Army's or DoD's web sites...defendamerica.mil, www.army.mil, defenselink.mil, or some such site. If I recall correctly, that palace was the opening splash on one of the sites for awhile.

You are correct, sir!

I looked on instpundit's arcive and found this

    "The reenlistment photo was at the entry site of the quasi-official US Army website, www.us.army.mil"
For anyone interested, it was posted Sept. 9.

For the little bit of news that comes out of the 101st I think the press has gotten the message that they are not wanted with them. :)

Clearly OBL, the Taliban and Saddam are the ones in a quagmire.

Next on the list; militant islam in Asia and the Saudi Royal Family.

Methinks they are taking an oath.

Of course, this was probably followed closely thereafter by a "rigid middle digit salute."

Thanks for the ping, Tom. Great to see the troops standing up to the enemy press.

We were paying attention.

8 Mass Reenlistment Marks July 4th Celebration in Baghdad [Morale at bottom? Bunk.]

I don't remember this cool picture. No wonder the press missed the story. Probably took one look at the heroes who chose to stay and ran the other way. (^;

They should continue to refer to all of these places as "Saddam's palaces"...

Its on par with a taunt referring to unmentionables with someone else's wife.

Except its all true....
