The Truth About Re-Enlistment - the Highest Yet - in Baghdad!
The above picture was sent to me via email from the re-enlistment ceremony held on July 4th in Baghdad.
It was the largest re-enlistment ever held in military history. The ceremony was held at Al Faw Palace, Baghdad, Iraq. General David Petraeus officiated. Yet, this amazing story was ignored by the "mainstream" media.
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. But. if 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, but not what for -- the only part they left out of the report was the event for which the pizzas were sent.
The writer questions: What would the opinion of Americans be if they weren't getting such obviously biased "news?"
Think about it! And how the American public is being persuaded to view the war incorrectly.
