What a waste

You may have read in the news recently about the highest ranking woman killed so far in Iraq. Something you probably didn't hear about was the "mission" she was involved in when it happened.

Marine Maj. Megan McClung, a public affairs officer who became the highest-ranking woman killed in Iraq when she died two weeks ago, had been escorting Oliver North and a FOX News crew through Ramadi just moments before a roadside bomb took her life, a military spokesman told E&P on Monday.

Oliver North, right wing radio hack wanted to see Iraq and report on it. Couldn't do it without a military escort though. I wonder if the "it isn't as bad as the media makes it out to be" line is something he will be using again any time soon.

Many journalists go out without any military escort, even in dangerous areas.

Not Ollie though...he's too important.

Michelle Malkin now plans on going over as well. She needs to prove that the AP falsified a story. I wonder how many escorts she is going to get, or if she will even leave the green zone.

Hannity and O'Reilly were there last week. Anyone see any stories yet about their experiences?

Bah. I can't continue this, I'm getting too angry to remain coherent.
