“Inbedded” Generals (April 21, 2008)

War makes strange bedfellows.  During the invasion of Iraq, the military allowed some reporters to be “embedded” with the troops and follow the action.  The “New York Times” reported yesterday that the military also “inbeds” some of its former generals in the press to issue glowing tales of accomplishment.  No wonder there are some Americans who still believe that the military is building above-ground swimming pools in every back yard and amusement parks in every village in Iraq.
