PR Opportunity Missed by alQaeda

It appears some very motivated soldiers - some who would not survive - had the honor of taking away a Photo Op from alQaeda only days before General Petraeus testifed before congress. This is a PR war as much as a blood war. Often our own press chooses to take the bait offered by the enemy and ignores the results from our own soldiers. Here is a close look at a battle for the headlines that might have highlighted enemy success.

Thank you for sharing this article. It is a long read. But, definitely worth it. I felt I was right there hearing this story as it unfolded. The writer was terrific.
It is stories like this one that belong in the headlines. Too many of us forget about the day-to-day life of our soldiers.. our extremely brave soldiers.
I hope everyone who sees your Blog will take the time to read this article.
Thanks again.
