FrontPage Magazine: "The outcome of a purely military contest in Fallujah was always a foregone conclusion – Coalition victory.

Specifically, the report mentioned false claims of civilian casualties, singling out Al Jazeera and Al-Arabiyah footage. “Children were shown bespattered with blood; mothers were shown screaming and mourning day after day.” Leaked anonymously on the internet, the United Press International (UPI) news service reports that it has confirmed the Army report’s accuracy. It confirms the thesis of the book David Horowitz and I wrote together, Party of Defeat: that the most effective efforts against the war have emanated from American politicians and journalists."
The anti-U.S. hacks in our government, educational institutions and the journalism profession cannot be that inept, dumb or gullible. Their strident anti-Americanism, in the early stages of a war, can only be explained in the context that they were operating not only to discredit and harm our military, and consequently the commander-in-chief, but in the larger global military-political theatre: These "useful idiots," or more accurately, enemy recruited "assets," seem to have been working for the very aims of our enemies worldwide, be it the worldwide socialist movement or it's like-minded brethren in the Islamo-fascist global jihad movement.
