The real stories

As with any war, it'll take a couple years for the real stories to seep out. Vets returning home relate them to family and friends and the stories make the rounds, of the details of battles too graphic for the news to cover, or those the military classified to avoid embarrassment, or worse. This might be horseshit or it might be one of those stories, the details of which will come out years later, when those responsible for the negligence or dereliction of duty or incompetence can no longer be harmed by them.

And just to add for it might not be obvious to all: If this story is true, the strategic implications for the U.S. are very worrisome, for our policy in the region and throughout the world.

Thanks to Maru and Blah3 for the link.
