FEAR THE OMBUDDY

The Ombudsgod discovers yet another ombudsman who deserves an ombudslap.

Also: According to the Gnu Hunterís analysis, the events in Iraq reported by happy kidnapee Donna Mulhearn are bullshit.

If Yank snipers had fired repeatedly from 300 meters at Ms. Mulhearn, as she claims, she would not be around to write this crap.

As a matter of fact, she would not have been around to hear the sound of the first shot--since the bullet that hit her squarely in the back of the head would have arrived before the sound of the shot.

Tim,

Perhaps the Ombudsgod needs to look and see the crap that U.S. college newspapers are printing these days. I am sure, especially since this guy is a minority, a job at the NY Times awaits him.

David Martinez's version of this story is here. It's amazing that they don't even think they have to bother making up consistent stories. David Martinez hears a "rifle crack" before the ambulance sustains.. automatic weapons fire. Uh.

The kindappers are playing the media like a fiddle but with this crew, it's not even required. They're all "activists" and most decidedly not journalists.
