Thanks for the ping, Stultis!

From the soldiers' perspective, the main US failure in Iraq to date has little to do with the situation on the ground. The main failure is the inability to transmit the reality they experienced daily to the American people.

"Our biggest mistake was letting go of the embedded media," says 2-7 executive officer Maj. Kevin Cooney.

Actually, the troops call the press "enemy #1." Our military is rather busy these days saving civilization. Informing the world is supposed to be the job of the FREE - thanks to the US military - American press.

Good article. (^;

 Thanks, Tonkin!
