Sunday New York Times Magazine lies again

Raped, traumitized and wounded, an Iraqi veteran tells of the horror of being a US soldier who the NYTs hoped to make a symbol of all that is wrong in Iraq appears to be another empty lie.

The correction also noted that since the article was published last week,
Randall herself asked a member of her unit as to whether she served in Iraq.
According to The Times, the sailor told Randall that she had not been deployed

Week in and week out the press prints lies they know and then retract them oh so late and a dollar short.

Never raped. Never wounded. Never in Iraq. The facts never checked.

Randolph Hearst would be proud to watch the Grey Lady slowly sink of self inflicted ruptures in Havana Bay. He'd have made it a Sunday Magazine cover story.

Sean Penn, Sex Symbol/Sean Penn, Intellectual Light Weight

Sean Penn is so like not there man. Two doobs a thought don't make.

"You and your smarmy pundits -- and the smarmy pundits you have in your
pocket -- can take your war and shove it," Penn said. "Let's unite not only in
stopping this war, but in holding this administration accountable."


"Let's make this crystal clear: We do support our troops, but not the
exploitation of them and their families," he said. "The money that's spent on
this war would be better spent on building levees in New Orleans and health care
in Africa and care for our veterans. Iraq is not our toilet. It's a country of
human beings whose lives that were once oppressed by Saddam are now in Dante's Inferno."

Levees in New Orleans - check
Health Care in Africa - check
Care for our veterans - check

Genocide in Iraq - ?

Good thinking Sean. It's like so heavy dude. Right on. You on body detail?

Dante's Inferno? Exactly what will he not do just to keep his open invite to Sarandon/Robbins parties. The thinking thing ain't working.

Just the dialogue dude, just the dialogue.

Safer that way.


Dude Update:
I had left out one part of the quote as was pointed out to me by numerous people. I didn't really want to include imagery from a fetid mind, but here is the fuller quote from the master intellectual genius Sean Penn (who has been to Iraq and Iran and you haven't):

"You and the smarmy pundits in your pocket. Those who bathe in the moisture of your soiled and blood-soaked underwear can take that noise and shove it!"
