I'm sure most of you have seen "Wag the Dog." Apparently so have a bunch of people in the Bush Administration PR machine - check out this Guardian story about the "rescue" of Jessica Lynch. One of the doctors is quoted as saying, "I examined her, I saw she had a broken arm, a broken thigh and a dislocated ankle. Then I did another examination. There was no [sign of] shooting, no bullet inside her body, no stab wound - only RTA, road traffic accident.... They want to distort the picture. I don't know why they think there is some benefit in saying she has a bullet injury." Also, according to the doctors present, there were no Feyadeen remaining at the hospital at the time of the "rescue," and the Americans knew it. Yet they came in with guns blazing, handcuffed everyone, and filmed it all.
