#1 CPL Knospler's devotion to duty and heroism are precisely why the dems will never be able to relate to service men and women. They are far too devoted to themselves to relate to CPL Knospler.

#2 I'll wager that if you asked Cpl Knospler if this hit piece accurately describes the interview he thought he gave, he'd say "NO! They left most of it out.".

On the other hand, I'm sure the MSNBC editors are as pleased as punch.

#3 Get used to it, GS. You'll see lots of this between now and the election. This is the democrats idea of looking tough on national security - misquoting or denigrating the service of our military dead or wounded. F' em.

#5 What I find irrating is that good people like Cpl. Knospler put there asses on the line to protect their fellow warriors and us.

While the assholes, like at pmsNBC, sit back, critize, and minimize his valor.

#7 You have to understand the media. The them the concept of 'honor' and 'duty' is completely alien. Take their reaction to the CBS fiasco.... "Never mind the forged documents... what about the accusations?". Look what they did to Tillman.

They understand duty, and honor and courage as much as I (a guy BTW) understand PMS....
