Spirit of America

(Click on the photo to see it)

The truth behind the picture: [T]his little girl's entire family was executed.They intended to execute her also and shot her in the head but they failed to kill her. She was cared for by John's hospital and healing up, but has been crying and moaning. The nurses said John is the only one she seems to calm down with, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both sleep in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing. (HT: Hugh Hewitt).

Here is more about Chief Master Sergeant John Gebhardt.

Do you ever wonder why images like these don't seem to have the same appeal for the MSM as the photos of Abu Ghraib? And do the Democrats truly want to leave freedom-seeking Iraqis to the tender mercies of the kind of people who would shoot this little girl in the head?

No and Yes.

No, I do not wonder why images like this do not appeal to the MSM. They simply don't fit the agenda.

Yes, Democrats want to leave freedom-seeking Iraqis to the mercy of terrorists who think nothing of shooting children in the head. Remember, Bush is the enemy!

Thank you for posting that picture. Don't take this the wrong way, but TexAgs has it's own "reporter" in Iraq and he put that thing up about a month ago.

Not a slam...just reinforcement that the good deeds of this group are more widely applauded than most think. The news gets out slowly, but it gets out.
