The Real "Saving Private Lynch"

"The most important thing to know is that the Iraqi soldiers and commanders had left the hospital almost two days earlier," Houssona said. "The night they left, a few of the senior medical staff tried to give Jessica back. We carefully moved her out of intensive care and into an ambulance and began to drive to the Americans, who were just one kilometre away. But when the ambulance got within 300 metres, they began to shoot. There wasn't even a chance to tell them `We have Jessica. Take her.'"

An important thing to remember when you see the TV movie in a few months, with the fiendish Iraqi demons putting up ferocious resistance to our heroic boys.

And now I hear on CNN this morning that Private Lynch "has amnesia" and can't remember her captivity or capture. Do you want to scream yet?
