Saving Private Lynch: take 2

To quote the story: "In the 1998 film "Wag the Dog," political operatives employ special editing techniques to create phony footage that will engender public sympathy for a manufactured war. Now we find that in 2003 the real-life Pentagon's ability and willingness to manipulate the facts make Hollywood's story lines look tame. After a thorough investigation, the British Broadcasting Corp. has presented a shocking dissection of the "heroic" rescue of Pvt. Jessica Lynch, as reported by the U.S. military and a breathless American press."

Basically, what the author is saying that the Bush administration made the whole Jessica Lynch POW rescue into something way more than it was, flat out saying that it was a crock. More outlets publishing the story. Crazy stuff, but I certainly wouldn't put it beyond anybody in Washington, especially this administration.
