2. Somebody posted this earlier about Fallujah photo ops....
No reason to assume that they aren't doing this for the elections too. At this point, I don't believe a damn thing I see on MSM. It's all a bunch of manufactured lies.

Then today, the military brings in a dozen Humvees and ground troops to basically seal off a small area near a market, he continues, In the middle of them is a CNN camera crew filming troops throwing candy to kids and these guys in orange vests start cleaning the streets around them.

He laughs while holding up his arms and says, Id never seen those guys anywhere in the city before. I dont know where they came from.

After a pause to take a drink of soda he adds, Id never seen any boots on the ground at all, and all of the sudden there are all these marines standing around like everything was ok. It was the first time Id seen any soldier not in a Humvee or a Bradley. I was really surprised.

All of it was 100% staged. Good PR before the election, he says. Then in a reference to mainstream America he adds, Fallujah is fine, now go back to sleep.
