RUMSFIELD GETS HIS TWO CENTS IN

It was inevitable. The US blew off the minaret from a mosque in Fallujah. It was being used by snipers.

What was the press reaction? You guessed it.

Read Rumsfield's response during his ops briefing. A portion:

There are two ways, I suppose, one could inform readers of the Geneva Convention stipulation against using places of worship to conduct military attacks. One might be to headline saying that Terrorists Attack Coalition Forces From Mosques. That would be one way to present the information.

Another might be to say: Mosques Targeted in Fallujah. That was the Los Angeles Times headline this morning.


It's about time the administration began pointing fingers at the media sources who are getting it wrong.
