Bush was asked how the war in Iraq was progressing. He was overheard answering, "We're kicking ass." But how were the soldiers who were fighting the war faring?

It is an unflinching account of the eight months in 2007 he spent embedded in US army infantry 2-16, a battalion based in Baghdad. Finkel chronicles how he formed bonds with the soldiers and observed close-up how the war changed them. He details the difficult decisions he faced when writing the book, and how the troops and their families have reacted to reading it.

10/11/09 interview with author and journalist Liz Trotta. She's right, the Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize have become a farce. Even liberals are agreeing www.youtube.com . The reporters even gasped when the Nobel Prize winner was announced in Norway www.youtube.com . Look at Katie Couric winning the Walter Cronkite Award for taking media bias to media activism. Them there Aussie are smarter than Americans blogs.news.com.au . I'mtired of people that condemn Fox because they feel that the media should have 100% bias to the left like Venezuela. They must think they're Hugo Chavez. That's typical liberal reverse logic, not knowing the facts, listening to nothing but liberal bias their entire lives and demonizing everyone that disagrees. Yeah, programmed robots like the robots that think they'll go to heaven by killing women and children of other religions. I guess constantly harassing the people you disagree with is the next step toward the type of government they want. In Russia where Putin controlled the media, he had an 80% approval rating. It makes you wonder if people can think for themselves. I listened to that liberal bias for 50 years and never did buy off on it. I've never groked the logic that America was so evil in Vietnam yet when the left got their way and three million were slaughtered and people took to the sea in make shift rafts with little chance of survival, the left didn't bat an eye. Or the logic that we are so evil for waterboarding three high level Al ...
