Well said. I personally have been disgusted by the media's distortion of the events surrounding the ambush of the 507th Maintenance Company and the entire battle for an Nasiriyah since the story began to unfold in March, 2003.

I was so disgusted that I set out on a three-year research project. I published "Marines in the Garden of Eden" last year. It has won awards and has been called 'the best book on the opening moments of OIF' by the chief historian of the Marine Corps and the 'definitive work' on the battle for Nasiriyah by the commanding general of the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade - the Marines who fought the battle.

Yet, the liberal media panned my book. Read Publisher's Weekly's review on
It seems there are many in this country that do not want America to hear the real story of what has happened and is happening in Iraq.

Thanks, Richard. Maybe if the Republicans on that House Oversight Committee would ask some probing questions, the truth wouldn't be so elusive. At the hearings in April, we heard only what Waxman wanted us to hear. The Republicans seemed uninterested.

Richard S. Lowry

You are soooooo right. I contacted Waxman and the senior republican on the committee and offered to help them sort out the facts. I even talked with a committee assistant. Once she heard my story, she couldn't get rid of me fast enough.

My personal experience with the committee is proof enough for me that they are on a witch hunt and have no desire to hear the truth.

Frank Warner

How about the ranking Republican? He didn't care?
