Perhaps Cheney will now stop telling us how soft Obama is on terrorism.Conservatives: "If the facts disagree with our opinion, ignore the facts -- or at least misrepresent them."

I understand enemy combatants can shoot at our troops, hide their rifles and join the Marines in the mess hall?
It's starting to sound a lot like the air war over north Viet Nam."The world burns while Obama Tweets."

And I'll say it again."The world burns while Obama Tweets."
February 16th, 2010, 10:46 AM #7*No night or surprise searches.
*Villagers have to be warned prior to searches.
*ANA or ANP must accompany U.S. units on searches.
*U.S. soldiers may not fire at the enemy unless the enemy is preparing to
*U.S. forces cannot engage the enemy if civilians are present.
*Only women can search women.
*Troops can fire at an insurgent if they catch him placing an IED but not if
insurgents are walking away from an area where explosives have been laid.
BTW us older folks in the service call this kind of crap....."A Johnson"
Chuckie this set of rules stinks of the liberal concept of war.

Your list are sources I would not ever trust on any subject to do with this war. They have flat lied or exaggerated this story.
edit, I have to exempt the Ausie source from that, I have not read enough of their stories to say anything about them. Thought it was our ABC
