  • Hollywood Productions from Pentagon

    Instead of telling the truth about the consequences of war, the Pentagon spinners produce a story straight from a Hollywood movie and it's important to know their techniques. The star of one of their Iraqi productions was 19-year-old Private Jessica Lynch, from Palestine, West Virginia, who joined the military to have her college fees paid because she wanted to be a kindergarten teacher. The college fee sting was highlighted in an excellent BBC documentary. The military are now so desperate to recruit more troops to "fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars as a core mission" that they are targeting and militarising schools, especially those of the poor and minorities, and enticing them into the military with the promise of paying their college fees. Once they sign on the line, however, these kids become liable to be deployed in war zones. So it was with Jessica Lynch. Jessica found herself in Iraq working as a supply clerk with the Army's 507th Maintenance Company. She was captured when her unit made a wrong turn near Nasiriya and was ambushed. Oh, what a frenzy of Hollywood scriptwriting exploded from the Pentagon for the media to feed upon. Mitchell Catlin, an Australian correspondent, even called her "Private Ryan", the Demi Moore character, in one report. The mistake was understandable because that was the way she was portrayed. "Belying her country-girl smile and petite 5-foot-5 frame, Lynch put up a Rambo-worthy fight when her unit, the Army's 507th Ordnance Maintenance Co., came under attack, according to a new report", screamed NY Daily News. Lynch opened fire on the Iraqi assailants, picking them off one by one until she ran out of ammunition, reported the Washington Post. She had continued shooting - even after she was shot and stabbed and her unit members were killed all around her. "She was fighting to the death", a US official told the Post. "She did not want to be taken alive." Er, so how come that after doing this to her "assailants", those nasty Iraqis didn't kill her when she ran out of ammunition? And how come she had no bullet or stab wounds?? Do you think US troops would have spared her in the same circumstances?

    However, the Iraqi doctors who treated her told a very different story about the "gun slinging, shot and stabbed" heroine. They said that she suffered fractures to her arms and lower limbs and a "small skull wound", sustained when her vehicle overturned. Her American doctors said she had fractures in her upper right arm, upper left leg, lower left leg and right ankle and foot. Her father, Greg Lynch Sr., told reporters she had no penetration wounds. "It was a road traffic accident", said Haitham Gizzy, a physician at the hospital at Nasiriya who treated Lynch for her injuries. "There was not a drop of blood ... there were no bullets or shrapnel or anything like that." Bryan Whitman, the US Assistant Secretary of Defense, said: "I'm not going to get into the specific injuries that she sustained; that's up to her and her doctors to discuss at the appropriate time." Like never. Discussing her injuries was not a problem, however, when they were telling us she was stabbed and shot. At the hospital, Dr Haitham Gizzy said, "She was given special care, more than the Iraqi patients."

    Houssona, another doctor who treated Lynch, said: "She was very frightened when she woke up and she kept saying: 'Please don't hurt me, don't touch me.' I told her that she was safe, she was in a hospital and that I was a doctor, and I never hurt a patient." He said he went outside the hospital during the bombing to get supplies of her favourite drink, orange juice, and struggled to persuade her to eat. The doctor said that Iraqi intelligence officers told the hospital that Private Lynch would soon be transferred to Baghdad, but instead he told an ambulance driver to deliver her to one of the American outposts that had already been established on the outskirts of the city. "But when he reached their checkpoint, the Americans fired at him", he said. You mean the Pentagon told us a pack of lies? Never. But Hollywood wasn't finished yet.


    The day after the Iraqi ambulance driver had tried to deliver Private Lynch to US troops only to be fired upon, she was "rescued" from her Iraqi hospital bed, we were told, in a daring raid by a team of Navy Seals, Marine commandos, Air Force pilots and Army Rangers working with US Special Forces. It was the first time an American Prisoner of War was freed from behind enemy lines in half a century, the media trumpeted.

    But once again the Iraqi doctors who were there tell a rather different tale. "They made a big show", said Lynch's doctor, Haitham Gizzy. "It was just a drama, a big, dramatic show."? Gizzy and other doctors said that there were no Iraqi soldiers or militiamen at the hospital when the US Special Operations forces arrived in their helicopters. Most of Saddam's Fedayeen Fighters and the entire Ba'ath Party leadership had fled. There was no one at the hospital when the troops arrived, he said, only doctors. Dr Hassan and others on duty that evening said they heard a "big thumping" near the hospital and the sound of helicopters and tanks before the soldiers began to enter the hospital. He said the doctors agreed to stay in one room and not to intervene while the soldiers broke down several doors in the hospital before locating Lynch. US soldiers videotaped the rescue, but among the many scenes not shown to the press at US Central Command in Doha, Qatar, was one of four doctors who were handcuffed and interrogated, together with two civilian patients, one of whom was immobile and connected to a drip. "They were doctors, with stethoscopes round their necks", Dr Harith said, "Even in war, a doctor should not be treated like thatís Hardly the story the Pentagon wanted to pedal. "What the Americans say is like the story of Sinbad the Sailor - it's a myth", said Dr Harith al-Houssona. "They said that there was no medical care in Iraq and that there was a very strong defence of this hospital, but there was no one here apart from doctors and patients, and there was nobody to fire at them."

    The doctor said that the troops cut open a bed specially designed for patients with bed sores that Private Lynch had been using. "They took samples of sand out of it", Dr Harith said. "It was the only bed like it that we have, the only one in the governorate." He said he felt sad that he would never see Jessica again, but he felt happy that she was happy and had gone back to her life. "If I could speak to her I would say: 'Congratulations!'" he said.

    The Iraqis are terrible aren't they?
