Lying Media Bastards

Shooting the Bullet-Riddled Messengers

If you’ve read much news lately, you probably heard about the Walter Reed scandal. Walter Reed is supposedly the nation’s premiere military hospital, filled with wounded veterans. But on February 18, the Washington Post did an exposé showing that Walter Reed was in decay and that the wounded and maimed soldiers were being neglected and mistreated.

And although I shouldn’t be surprised, I was somewhat astounded to read that the military is dealing with this situation by telling the soldiers to shut up and keep their own hospital rooms clean:

Soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center’s Medical Hold Unit say they have been told they will wake up at 6 a.m. every morning and have their rooms ready for inspection at 7 a.m., and that they must not speak to the media.

Standard operating procedure. Easier to hide a problem than fix it.

Insert your own cynical punchline about supporting the troops.

  1. You would think that the last thing the military wants is an uprising from the rank-and-file.

  2. Does anyone with an I.Q. over 17 believe that Bush and Cheney really give a damn if our veterans live or die as long as they get what they want out of these stupid advetures of thiers?

  4. Well the simple answer is: “Propaganda by deed has been proven a failure, that only alienates people from whatever movement”.
