The real story of the Jessica Lynch affair is how the Pentagon lied to the country trying to depict miss Lynch as a hero, fighting off the enemy, when in actual fact all she suffered was getting injured and caught by the enemy. It was strange that CBS chose today to air (60 mins) the real story of what happened on that day and by the looks of it Jessica did not do much , contrary to the usual lying spin we get from our leaders today. The film, although technically well done is about nothing, with no conflict no interest and a who f*%&+#@ cares outcome. It is about nothing and the only reason why this story surfaced is because of the lie perpetrated by those who would blind us about the horrible immoral and unworthy war we are sending our children to.
