"The best America has to offer"

Warning: Pointless evil this way comes.

"My soldiers conduct is consistently honorable. [...] Again, this young man has a vivid imagination and I promise you that this by no means reflects the truth of what is happening here. I’m currently serving with the best America has to offer."
-1SG Hatley
"In March or April 2007, three noncommissioned United States Army officers, including a first sergeant, a platoon sergeant and a senior medic, killed four Iraqi prisoners with pistol shots to the head as the men stood handcuffed and blindfolded beside a Baghdad canal, two of the soldiers said in sworn statements...

..The accounts of and confessions to the killings, by Sgt. First Class Joseph P. Mayo, the platoon sergeant, and Sgt. Michael P. Leahy Jr., Company D’s senior medic and an acting squad leader, were made in January in signed statements to Army investigators in Schweinfurt, Germany.

In their statements, Sergeants Mayo and Leahy each described killing at least one of the Iraqi detainees on instructions from First Sgt. John E. Hatley, who the soldiers said killed two of the detainees with pistol shots to the back of their heads.

...Last month, four other soldiers from Sergeant Hatley’s unit were charged with murder conspiracy for agreeing to go along with the plan to kill the four prisoners, in violation of military laws that forbid harming enemy combatants once they are disarmed and in custody."

And yet, even after Beauchamp was outed as an abject fraud, you're willing to believe a nihilist rag like the NYT?

"Nihilist rag"
I like that.
Kind of like FAUX News is the nihilist network.
I like it.
Is that all you got?

Taking the word of the NYT? Is that all YOU got?

The Soldiers chased down the terrorists who fired at them and found their weapons cache. I'll take the their word over the NYT, or the opinion of a liberal cockholster who thinks the NYT actually tells the truth.

Actually I'm taking the word of "sworn statements", and I'm not even saying for sure it's absolutely true. I'm throwing it out there.
Do I think it happened as it's purported to have? Yes probably. Would I be surprised if it wasn't completely true? No.
By the way DICK, IMO the NYT is about as believable as CNN(FAUX News Lite). I don't believe much of anything I see, much less what I hear.
That goes especially for a FOX News watching wingnut.
