Discuss Wars Based on a Pack of Lies and Sponsored by Jesus Here
Posted 15 October 2006 - 06:59 AM
I'm always going on about capitalist imperialist wars of aggression and the Glorious Christian leader that espouses them, so now we have an area just for these topics.
And remember, just say NO to wars of capitalist imperialist aggression that are based on a pack of lies, even if Jesus told him to do it.

U.S. Army says it misreported 7 deaths
Posted on October 30, 2006
WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has conceded it misreported the details of how seven soldiers were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, USA Today reported Monday.
Col. Patrick Gawkins, head of the Army's notification office, told the newspaper 810 deaths, or about 40 percent of the nearly 2,200 Army deaths in the two theaters had been reviewed, and families were given wrong or misleading information about the circumstances.
One of those was former NFL football player Pat Tillman, an Army Ranger killed in Afghanistan by friendly fire in 2004. His family was originally told he died by enemy fire.
Another death was that of a soldier in Afghanistan who died of a heart attack and his family was not told death occurred during inhalation of a substance from an aerosol can, Gawkins said.
He said the Army is now investigating every war death and alerting families if there may be suspicious circumstances, the newspaper said.

I'm not convinced it was "incompetence" - I think they really believed they could get away with it, and only when they found out otherwise did they come clean about it. Who knows how much they're still hiding.
More incompetence? Why am I not surprised?
