As a timely follow up for yesterday's post, I thought I'd post this email I got today from another friend...happy birthday to her, I should say as well. Anyway, I thought it was interesting and reminds me of not long ago when a recently returned Marine spoke to my Kiwani's chapter. He made what to me was a remarkable statement...and a disappointing one. He said that he wasn't aware that the United States was losing the mission in Iraq until he returned back home. For, in fact, they aren't losing at all. I was astonished to hear the actual facts of security and peace brought to Iraq, especially when compared to its previous state. This must sound astounding to anyone who sees the opposite reported nightly on the news. Anyway, here is the email. She checked it on SNOPES as well.

This not sent from me as a political bid for a vote for either party. It is just an awesome story, and if our media (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, etc. intentionally did not tell us, that's scary!! By the way this checked out true on SNOPES.

Largest Re-enlistment Ceremony - Ever

I'm sure you already know about this. It was shown over and over on TV, right?

OK, so maybe it wasn't shown over and over, but surely it was shown on TV at least one time, wasn't it ?

This was the largest re-enlistment ceremony ever held in military history. The ceremony was held on the 4th of July, 2008 at Al Faw Palace, Baghdad , Iraq . General David Petraeus officiated. This amazing story was ignored by the 'mainstream' media.

For those who have been in the Al Faw Palace, you'll have a better appreciation of the number of people crammed around the rotunda supporting the re-enlisting soldiers.

American men and women volunteering to stay longer in Iraq, so that when we leave, the new democracy will have a chance of surviving, is the exact opposite of what the media wants you to think about Iraq. If only a bomb had killed 5 civilians in a marketplace - now that's the kind of news the media is eager to tell you about.

A pizzeria in Chicago donated 2000 pizzas that were made and shipped to Baghdad , and were delivered on the 4th.

The media did report that 2000 pizzas were sent to Iraq on July 4th... The only part they left out of the report was the event for which the pizzas were sent.

I can't help but wonder...

What would the opinion of Americans be if they weren't getting such obviously biased 'news?'

Pass this on and we will do the work for the Media.
