United Press International - Security & Terrorism - Some US troops question Woodruff coverage: "At least 2,242 troops have died in Iraq since the war's start, 1,753 of them killed in action. Another 16,000 have been injured, half of them seriously enough to require evacuation from the battlefield. According to the Pentagon, 60 percent of the deaths are the result of IEDs. IEDs have injured more than 9,200 troops, nine times more than gunshots.
'The point that is currently being made (is that) that press folks are more important than mere military folks,' a senior military officer told UPI Tuesday. "

I am sorry Woodruff got blown up, but I wouldn't trade one of these brave Marines for ten thousand newsmen. The modern liberal newsman works against the liberty and constitutional guarantees of the American people. Our brave soldiers defend our freedoms and liberty. The fuss about the Woodruff matter shows how self-serving the newsmedia is. They report more on themselves than they do on the sucesses of the military.
