That is a great quote about failing to support the effort of the troops. I feel the same way today--when the Iraqis ratified their constitution, the News & Observer (www.newsobserver.com) ran a story on the front page--2000th soldier killed. In a sub-headline near the bottom of the page they mentioned the constitution. In my opinion, this emphasized the insurgents' accomplishments over the victory of the troops and the Iraqi people. If it were one incident, ok maybe, but it's a common theme. The media seems to want our troops to be ashamed of what they are doing. It is unconscionable that the people that put their lives on the line for freedom should come home to face criticism from the people at home getting the benefit of that ultimate risk and sacrifice.
