OF COURSE
WE DIDN'T KNOW!!!!!!  

But the Media does know!!!!!!

WHY DIDN'T WE KNOW?

OUR MEDIA WOULDN'T TELL US!!

Because an administration hating media and some politicians would rather see the world blow up, than lose their power. 

Instead of shouting these accomplishments from every rooftop, they would rather show photo's of what a few perverted malcontent soldiers have done in prisons in many cases never disclosing the circumstances surrounding the events. 

Instead of showing our love for our country, the
USA, we get photos of incidents at Abu Ghraib.


The lack of accentuating the positive in
Iraq serves only one purpose. It undermines the world's perception of the United States and our soldiers.

WE ARE NOT THE BAD GUYS IN THIS STRUGGLE FOR WORLD PEACE!.
