I must be a positive thinker, because I keep thinking the lies from the Media might one day stop. They might see the light and change their wicked, wicked ways. But it just is not going to happen in my lifetime or anyone else’s!
The New York Times has taken the words of a U.S. soldier who was killed in Iraq to make it seem that he thought his mission was senseless. The truth is exactly the opposite.
Here are the words from US Marine Corporal Jeffrey B. Starr in a letter he had written to his girlfriend……………..
“Obviously if you are reading this then I have died in Iraq. I kind of predicted this, that is why I’m writing this in November. A third time just seemed like I’m pushing my chances. I don’t regret going, everybody dies but few get to do it for something as important as freedom. It may seem confusing why we are in Iraq, it’s not to me. I’m here helping these people, so that they can live the way we live. Not have to worry about tyrants or vicious dictators. To do what they want with their lives. To me that is why I died. Others have died for my freedom, now this is my mark.”
And this is the version that the NYT’s had…………………
Sifting through Corporal Starr’s laptop computer after his death, his father found a letter to be delivered to the marine’s girlfriend. “I kind of predicted this,” Corporal Starr wrote of his own death. “A third time just seemed like I’m pushing my chances.”
The letter was sent to Michelle Malkin. And at Mudville Gazette, Grayhawk also takes a look back on a few examples of the New York Times attacks on American GIs in the past. Kelli Pundit talks about it too.
