On The Other Side
A blogging Black Hawk pilot asks “are these reporters in the now-infamous MSM really that determined to see us fail in Iraq?”
His answer comes by way of an email from NBC “award winning” reporter, John Hockenberry.
Sorry, never would have expected an officer to speak so ignorantly. I’ve been in Iraq, Kuwait, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Israel. Jordan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Lebanon, and Pakistan. As for being ignorant of the military, ouch, wrong about that one too. I have two relatives buried at Arlington. But hey, making blanket statements about people seems to be a real talent over there at DOD. At least you know the difference between a real threat to our nation and a bogus half dead dictator (who was once on the CIA payroll). I feel better already knowing you are out there on the front lines delirious with self righteousness. Hey, you can call me a liar but I can’t compete with you guys… you’re professional grade. Hope your next promotion doesn’t take too long I’m really looking forward to paying you more money to protect me and my family so well. Thanks again 2Slick (the officer who is apparently embarrassed to reveal his rank)

With an attention to detail befitting his profession, Hockenberry had missed the letters CPT in front of his nick.

I ask you- whose side are these people on? I’m on my second tour in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and I won’t even pretend to know the answer. But I don’t like what I’m seeing.

White Flag Update – Hockenberry extends an olive branch. And 2Slick marvels at the power of the blogosphere.
