WaPo Mislabels NC Rep Patrick McHenry as War Veteran!
(Shocking in that Robin Wright was one of those listed as contributing to the article and she's usually very credible. McHenry, a War Veteran :rofl:)


WaPo mislabels Rep. McHenry as an Iraq war veteran.

In the Washington Posts write up today of Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crockers second day of testimony, reporters William Branigin, Robin Wright and Peter Baker quoted Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) as saying, Let the generals in the field dictate. The reporters also referred to McHenry as an Iraq war veteran:

Republicans, by contrast, seized on the plan as a political lifeboat after months of being forced to vote against measures repudiating Bushs policy. Let the generals in the field dictate, said Rep. Patrick T. McHenry (N.C.), an Iraq war veteran. We would support it, said Rep. Jack Kingston (Ga.), a member of the defense appropriations subcommittee.


McHenry, however, never served in the military, let alone the Iraq war. You can email the Posts corrections page at corrections@washpost.com . 1:02

1. Patrick McHenry is a war veteran
Just like Larry Craig has a naturally wide stance when he pee pees.

12. His Name Has Surfaced In a Florida Suicide Case
One involving three GOOP "operatives" who were invovled in some fatlistic love triangle or quadrangle or whatever.

Maybe the Post should do a little investigating on that story. Nah...that requires reporting, not stenography.

:hi:

14. Which somehow ties back to a gay male prostitution ring
in Virginia that allegedly services prominent Repubs, involves the murder of a competitor and someone is being blackmailed.
