Re: US Soldiers in St. Louis Admit to Rape and Murder in Iraq

This stuff doesn't make the "mainstream" news because of a little thing called fact checking..You see, Umar ben-Ivan lee could, and my guess he probably is, making this whole account up...how can we tell if he isn't? Any recordings of the conversation? Names of the "soldiers" so someone else can follow up? Again my guess would be no on both counts. So you see kids, what you have here is a story. True? False? Who knows. I could do the same thing. Gues what, I opened a door at the PETA offices and saw anti-war activists doing unmentionable things to puppies. Prove it untrue.

Fact checking in the mainstream media? HA!
Fact checking in the mainstream media? Like when the NY Times published that Iraq had tubes that were simply perfect to use for refining weapons grade uranium? Gimmee a break, buddy. The rest of the media had to bust that, and it only took a bit, because it was easy to fact check.

Like when journalists interview people out on the street? Many of them just have a note pad and pencil. Sure they ask for your name but you could make that up if you wanted and they'd be none the wiser.

Get real. Either you believe it or you don't. But we already know that this article is consistent with what's happening in Iraq. It matches the human interest articles from *choke* the mainstream media.
