Our gov't must respond. The media made our gov't move and take action. The gov't must now do what they believe the people of America would want to happen to our men and women who had to go to that terrible country to fight a war. We now have the capability to see what really happens around the world because of current technology and we see what's happening in Iraq.
Even though the media is in the government's hip pocket and they omit a butt-load of pertinent information, they are still part of a free market. Every media outlet's primary purpose is to make money. If they determine that a great many of the people are concerned about one thing at the same time, they are going to capitalize on it. Media is making a killing off this issue, make no mistake. This is actually the only thing that is keeping the media from being essentially government owned and operated. The people are always the thread from which the media hang.

Your glorification of the media and internet fails to adress the position and possibly further lives lost because of the way this story was RE-BROKEN by who was it CBS, What 10,40,100 bad apples reported in a sensational manner all over the world accomplishes is to make 134,900 other soldiers face increased danger until this war is over - is that right?
