139. Only one embed was kicked out of Iraq in the run to Baghdad
which occurred in 03 at the start of the war. Which is the period of time in question.

Just one: Geraldo. He decided to draw a line in the sand, detailling his position, the dunce. On live TV!

Since that time, a lot has happened. The insurgency, for one. Fallujah, Ramadi, IEDs, RPGs, the Syrian border ops.

The war in 03 is NOT the same war that has developed subsequent to the "major combat operations have ended" horseshit. Fallujah was the opening salvo of this "other war" -- if you recall, the reporters at the fancy media center basically walked out, because they weren't getting any useful information from the briefers.

A large percentage of the reporters who remain in Iraq nowadays do nothing but order room service and ask the waiters what the hell is going on--they are prisoners, essentially.

You have every right to your opinion, but I think Ron Harris isn't lying, and was not bought off. So we will just have to agree to disagree on this issue.
