The soldier Bush referenced in his speech (“We soldiers of yours are doing great and scoring victories in confronting the evil terrorists.”) is part of a right-wing propaganda outfit. See here.
“Joe Roche serves with the U.S. Army’s 16th Combat Engineer Battalion in Iraq and is an adjunct fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research, a Washington think-tank”. What’s the Nat’l Center for Public Policy Research? “The National Center helped change public opinion through vocal national campaigns aimed at supporting Reagan administration initiatives concerning the USSR, arms control, Central America and human rights”. Tom Delay says “The National Center is THE CENTER for conservative communications.”
What a phony. (thanks to reader Lisa B. for the tip)
