***Operation Iraqi Freedom - Situation Room - Day 9 - LIVE THREAD*** ^
Multiple | 28 March 2003 | Various

Posted on 03/27/2003 8:56:19 PM PST by An.American.Expatriate

Good Morning.

This is the Daily Thread of Operation Iraqi Freedom - LIVE THREAD.

It is designed for general conversation about the events of the day. In depth discussion of events should be left to individual threads - but links to the threads or other articles is highly encouraged. This allows us to stay abreast of the situation in general, while also providing a means of obtaining specific information.

Please have mercy on us dial up limited FReepers! Limit the big graphics, post links instead. A breif description of what the graphic is would help:

Special thanks to null and void for keeping these running on the weekend, to all of you for keeping these threads alive, the AdminMods for their tolerance, mhking for the video links, and, of course, Belly Girl...

Yes I heard him and thought the same thing. Unfortunately I have no reason to believe he would clear before broadcast, but I hope that's the case.

He was saying that if Levanthols group had run out of supplies that would be very disturbing and it had never happened before in anything he had had experience with. Greg Kelly said his group had not had any problems at all. Hope Shep asks Levanthol about supplies again..has him on tv now.

I think we are pretty much covering the desert right now. If the Iragis want to run out into the desert and turn right, left or go straight we'll be there. It doesn't matter.
