It is come out that last week's news story about Iraqi insurgents storming a government office during a meeting in which five American soldiers were
killed was a fabrication. One solder was killed on site and the other four soldiers were killed instead after being taken hostage, drove 25 miles into
another province and executed.
BAGHDAD, Iraq - In perhaps the boldest and most sophisticated attack in four years of warfare, gunmen speaking English, wearing U.S. military
uniforms and carrying American weapons abducted four U.S. soldiers last week at the provincial headquarters in the Shiite holy city of Karbala and
then shot them to death.
The U.S. military confirmed a report earlier Friday by The Associated Press that three of the soldiers were dead and one was mortally wounded with a
gunshot to the head when they were found in a neighboring province, about 25 miles from the compound where they were captured. A fifth soldier was
killed in the initial attack on the compound.
The new account contradicted a U.S. military statement on Jan. 20, the day of the raid on an Iraqi governor's office, that five soldiers were killed
"repelling" the attack.

Well now it just seems that this military can't keep its stories right. First there were the fabricated heroics of Jessica Lynch, which she herself
reputed, then there was the whole Pat Tillman fiasco, the lies surrounding Abu Graib (a few bad apples, so only the lower ranks are punished), various
rapes and Mai Li style massacre's (give me the Alice's Restaurant Massacre any day) and now this.
Just why is this... are we afraid to admit our men were captured instead of fighting to the death? Does it read better in the papers? Or does this
Administration, one so allergic to the truth anyway, seem to think that somehow these lies make this ignoble war look more noble?
