The above facts are verifiable on the Department of Defense website.

But, instead of shouting these accomplishments from every rooftop, the Bush-hating Liberal media would rather show photos of what a few perverted malcontent soldiers have done in prisons - in many cases never disclosing the circumstances surrounding the events.

Instead of showing our love for our country, we get photos of flag burning incidents at Abu Ghraib and people throwing snowballs at presidential motorcades.

The lack of accentuating the positive in Iraq serves only one purpose. It undermines the world’s perception of the United States and our soldiers.

It would seem that our liberal media would rather see terrorism succeed than our Republican President!
