Henry Waxman Wants The Truth

The Associated Press reports: Lynch Rescue Added To Tillman Probe

A U.S. House committee announced Tuesday it would hold hearings on misleading military statements that followed the friendly fire death of Pat Tillman in Afghanistan and the rescue of Pfc. Jessica Lynch in Iraq.

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform said an April 24 hearing would be part of its investigation into whether there was a strategy to mislead the public.

The first victim of war is the truth. I have always felt bad about what Jessica Lynch had to go through, trying to deal with all of the lies that were told about her injuries and “rescue” while trying to recover from the accident and death of friends. She was trying to get the truth out while her government was lying.

Bad things happen to good people, in and out of uniform, but they don’t get any better when you lie about them.

The Shrubbery didn’t invent this problem. The Tuskegee Airmen were only, really recognized for their World War II service recently.
