A Looser Lies? Say It Isn't So
In the previous post Korey Rowe was praising the Taliban freedom fighters of Afghanistan. We continue here at the 15 minute mark:
So they decide to tell us to clear the place, make sure the place is cleared. Obviously there is no one here. The buildings that were supposed to be there were rubble, there were like, maybe a quarter of the wall was left. I was told to climb up this hill, and clear this small hole that was in the side of the hill, because there might be someone hiding in there, with an AK-47 or an RPG or something. So I walk all the way up to this hole, I look down, and there is a slim-jim wrapper in the hole. I mean, obviously SF had been there, and they had even stayed in the hole I was clearing the night before.
Hey, is it our fault that SF is always a step ahead of you 101 pukes? De Oppresso Liber.
Anyway, he continues:
CNN, like I said is up the hill, at this point everyone is pissed, we are carrying all this ammo, so we are like, you know, we’re going home, let’s spendex it. So there is a beautiful couple of caves, so we take that 800 pounds of C-4 and we decide to blow up the caves, the whole time CNN is right there with the camera. It’s cool stuff, guys just blowing stuff up, right. So after that is like, guys we you got all that ammo, let’s go out to the field and shoot it. We got on-line, and we’re just blasting away. And then I go home, and I don’t think about it. Everyone goes home, nobody thinks about it. It’s over. As soon as we get back, it’s Iraq, nobody thinks about it.You don't think about it, huh? That is odd, because you seem to have thought about it enough to have given a newspaper interview about it. And you told a rather different story:
Finally, in May, Rowe and a group of soldiers were sent on a mission to destroy a suspected al-Qaida camp."We searched and blew up the caves to make it unusable," he said. "We were lucky there was no one there. We were lucky we didn't get attacked."
"We had satellite surveillance telling us there were terrorist camps," he said. "We trained and practiced and trained and practiced."
The group flew in at night and explored a maze of caves, only to find abandoned ammunition.
He then describes how CNN edited the footage to make it look like a real attack. Could be, wouldn't be the first time CNN made up a story, but given the Loosers loose hold on the truth, I would have to check it out.
