Oh Steno Sue Oh Steno Sue

Oh, well, you're such a fool, yes, what a tool, Steno Sue...
The story that started it all:

WASHINGTON -- Pfc. Jessica Lynch, rescued Tuesday from an Iraqi hospital, fought fiercely and shot several enemy soldiers after Iraqi forces ambushed the Army's 507th Ordnance Maintenance Company, firing her weapon until she ran out of ammunition, U.S. officials said yesterday.

Lynch, a 19-year-old supply clerk, continued firing at the Iraqis even after she sustained multiple gunshot wounds and watched several other soldiers in her unit die around her in fighting 11 days ago, one official said. The ambush took place after a 507th convoy, supporting the advancing 3rd Infantry Division, took a wrong turn in the southern city of Nasiriyah.

"She was fighting to the death," the official said. "She did not want to be taken alive."

When your sources lie to you, it is incumbent on you to reveal those sources.

Email Michael Getler, ombudsmen at the Washington Post, and ask him when Susan Schmidt intends to inform the public about the "U.S. officials" who are using the press to spread lies.
