Smoke and sunset

So Newsweek is blowing smoke . You might think big deal while reading this and drinking your morning cup of coffee or whatever, but for us (US military and coalition forces) life became infinitely harder and more dangerous . More here and here. If a soldier is killed at a riot or rocket attack based on this faulty reporting, will Newsweek standup, take the blame and pay a financial penalty for a wrongful death suit? I know the blame goes on the terrorists who are fanning the flames by broadcasting propaganda from mosques PA systems, but where did they get their information from? A bogus Newsweek report. So thanks a lot Newsweek for making our life so much easier. I hope the reporter who wrote the great piece of fiction goes on a patrol with US Forces and see what he has wroth. So Mark you want to join the party that you started?

Hey, remember to stay safe and avoid the best attempts of Newsweek to get you killed. :-p

Seriously, just be aware that myself and the rest of the blogosphere (wow, I just made myself sound REALLY important there, huh) are with you and the rest of the troops on this one. We know the consequences of the spreading of this story, and we'll make sure the rest of the world understands, as well.

I think you really should send "Mark" a personal invite! Give him a taste of your life and see how cavelier and rightous he sounds then.
