Trust Lynched

The wrongness of the WMD story was shrugged off by blaming faulty intelligence. The deceptive nature of the story of Private Lynch has no such scapegoat to hide behind. It emanated directly from the US Military, a portrayal of bravery under fire, and to say that the story was slightly colourised would be being diplomatic.

Lynch's repudiation of the official military version of her capture and "rescue" will affect many in a way that concerns over WMD didn't. This time our leaders in the War On Terror have been proven to have deliberately acted in an untrustworthy manner.

Many will wonder whether, if their faith has been betrayed by such conduct, they are being otherwisely misinformed for propaganda purposes on perhaps more crucial aspects of this War. Do you blame them?
