40. She's not a credible argument?
Edited on Sun Nov-09-03 06:23 PM by RapidCreek
This is the first time we have heard her argument, for christs fucking sakes. What facts go against what she is saying? Facts...give them to me. One by one.

1) Iraqi doctors said they saw no evidence that she was raped. That's a fact.

2)Ms. Lynch says she doesn't remember being raped. that's a fact.

3)It is claimed by a right wing neocon author that Ms. Lynch's US military medical records indicate she was raped.That is a fact.

4)These records do NOT say she was raped. The same military which told lies about her rescue also compiled her medical records, which by the way are confidential and not viewable by anyone but her without her permission. That is a fact.

5)The taping of her 'rescue' was a PR film produced by the military. The same military who lied about her brave fight and dangerous rescue. A fight she does remember, she did not participate in. That is a fact.

6)Those on DU who castigated Ms. Lynch were lead to believe that she backed up the militarys nonsensical account of her capture and rescue. She now has come forward and stated that this account is untrue. That is a fact.

7)The media initially led us to believe that she gladly accepted her 'hero' status when it now becomes clear, she does not. That is a fact.

What of the above is not credible?
