It’s interesting that the truth is now coming out about the deaths of a series of US troops and also the rescue of Jessica Lynch. She was the one, if memory serves, that was apparently captured by the enemy and rescued by US Special Forces from the clutches of the enemy in a daring rescue mission.
In reality she was injured in a road accident and taken to the hospital, that was back when Iraq still had them, and if I remember rightly never actually came into contact with the enemy.
We tend to think that it is only the enemy that use propaganda and we ourselves are too intelligent, too free, to fall for such tricks.
How naive we are.
