OF COURSE WE DIDN'T KNOW!

AND WHY DIDN'T WE KNOW?

BECAUSE OUR MEDIA WOULDN'T TELL US!

Because a Bush-hating media and left wing liberals would rather see terrorism prevail in the world rather than exercise unbiased reporting and any expression of patriotism.

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

I AM ASHAMED OF THOSE AMERICANS WHO WOULD RATHER SEE TERRORISM SUCCEED THAN A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT.

All of these fact are verifiable on the Department of Defense website and many independent sources.

Please pass it on!
