I'll say it's flawed! We were duped here in America.

Barry Lando (producer for '60 Minutes' for 30 years) wrote a satirical piece (filled with factual reports) on this propanda for Salon:

Saving Pvt. Lynch: The Made-for-TV-Movie

Quote:
According to two different reporters, the day before, the raid, a waiter from Nasiriya's al-Diwan restaurant is approached near the hospital by U.S. Special Forces with an Arabic interpreter, and they ask him if any Iraqi troops are still in the hospital. "And I say, 'No, they're all gone,'" the waiter replied.

There's more: Fox News reports that, to confirm Jessica's location, "officials with the Defense Intelligence Agency equipped and trained an Iraqi informant with a concealed video camera. On the day of the raid, the informant walked around the hospital, videotaping entrances and a route to Lynch's room."

If true, wouldn't the military planners have known there were no Iraqi forces inside the hospital when they made the raid?

Could we be making a made-for-television movie about a made-for-television movie?

Everyone is assuming the press has seen the entire recording of the rescue, they have not.

At some point a lot more of this is going to come out.

Indeed, UmmNuh.

The victors always write the history books. Or, in this case, make the movie (with Bruckheimer advising) for propaganda.



Quote:
US soldiers videotaped the rescue, but among the many scenes not shown to the press at US Central Command in Doha was one of four doctors who were handcuffed and interrogated, along with two civilian patients, one of whom was immobile and connected to a drip. “They were doctors, with stethoscopes round their necks,” Dr Harith said.

Unluckiest of all was Abdul Razaq, one of the hospital administrators, who took shelter from the bombardment in Private Lynch’s room, believing that he would be safe.

He was seized and taken with the US soldiers on their helicopter to their base, where he was held for three days in an open-air prison camp.

“When he left his skin was the colour of yours,” another doctor, Mahmud, said. “When he came back, he was black.”
Wow, once that scene is viewed by the press, that will change everything, right?

They were said to have come under fire from inside and outside the building, but they made it to Lynch and whisked her away by helicopter.
If there weren't any soldiers present who was shooting at them??
