It seems like half the sphere is freaking out over the Newsweek story about flushing a Koran down in Gitmo. It isn’t true, it didn’t happen, Newsweek is now blamed for a riot and the following deaths of US service members.
Now. I’m a military service member and I’m completely pissed that Newsweek could publish something like this. The media seems to have been completely out of line since the beginning of the war. The completely negative press the military has been getting is a complete outrage. At times, I do wish we would stop protecting the First Amendment and then watch them squirm. One word comes to mind when I think about all this. Abuse.
Here is a small hint to the media: Stop acting like fools before you don’t have anyone to protect you.
