Senator Warner - Here's Your Fireside Chat II

Senator Warner wants an investigation into POSITIVE reporting on the war in Iraq.

"Senator John Warner, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he asked the Pentagon to respond to published reports that the U.S. military has covertly paid Iraqi newspapers to print pro-American stories.

Warner, a Republican of Virginia, said in a statement that he has ``has no information to confirm or refute the report,'' and asked the Defense Department to brief the committee tomorrow on the issue.

The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that stories written by ``information operation'' troops were secretly placed with media outlets in Iraq through a Washington-based defense contractor, Lincoln Group.

The stories are presented as unbiased news accounts written and reported by independent journalists, the paper reported. The articles praise the work of U.S. and Iraqi troops, denounce insurgents and commend U.S.-led efforts to rebuild the country."

Oh my God!

I guess that would be room for an investigation because according the "trustworthy" MSM, things can't be that good. How could our troops be doing so well when they're all beating on Muslims and peeing on their Qurans?

And of course Cindy Sheehan's battlefield replacement Rep. Murtha tells us that the Army's broken, demoralized and generally disgusted, and a Jarhead Marine should know how the Army's doing right?

So of course any positive reporting that our brave men and women were doing well, getting the job, winning the war, getting the mission accomplished is simply unacceptable in Senator Warner's eyes.
