CNN's Barbara Starr yesterday:

What is very interesting is several days later now nobody is criticizing the soldier. He made a valid point but there's no real evidence yet that anyone has demonstrated soldiers are going through landfills finding scrap metal and bits of glass to bolt onto their vehicles. So, you know, truth always lies, as we know as reporters, always lies somewhere in between what everybody is out there saying.

Jeebus. Last week the talking point was that this is okay because it's normal in war for soldiers to improvise and make use of what's available just like they did in World War II!!! Now it's "the soldier might be lying."
