Haditha - If you want facts the MSM and Murtha are the last place to go

As we know, something happened in Haditha, just what is purely a matter of specuation. I repeat, purely specuation. No one - not Time Magazine, MSNBC or cut and run Murtha, knows what went on there other than what they have picked up from certain sources, witnesses, etc. Murtha knows next to nothing.

It's a good thing we most often don't get the truth from the news. We get the hysteria, the hype, and in some cases faked news outright lies.

But watching the news tonight it's clear the MSM has the same script it's had for the last few years. Like, "Coverup to the very top", with the slow, but steady drumbeat to fire Rumsfeld. If this is proved to be correct get ready for the already beginning mantra of My Lai — Iraq — Vietnam, etc.

However, talking with REAL sources, apparently what happened is bad, but not as what the MSM is protraying (no duh there), but that doesn't clear the Marine unit involved either. Word is that the investigation has NOT completed, but that it looks like there will be disciplinary action taken.

As to the "all the way to the top!", The command of the unit in question appears to have been commanded by a first line supervisor, who is being defended by Bush critic and Iraq war vet and failed politician Paul Hackett (nuff said).

In other words if true this was a single unit under a single leader with a god complex.

Again, the last source to believe on anything is the MSM which over the course of the last few years has had it's share of false reports. Let's also not forget how they ran with the bogus Jessie MacBeth story.

But there are so many questions that we're going to have to wait. But again as in Abu Grab (as in any war) there are many such incidents in war. The important fact to always remember that these are ISOLATED incidents and not indicative of the 100,000 plus soldiers who do the job right.

As I said before, if the allegations are true, then let justice prevail, but we'll have to wait.

UPDATE: Good read from Thomas Owens at NRO. Echos my thoughts exactly.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
