Republicans demand screening of Reagan miniseries
CNN | Submitted by: Soylent
"The Republican National Committee Friday asked CBS to allow a team of historians and friends of former President Ronald Reagan and his wife to review a miniseries about the couple before it airs. Republicans have expressed concern that the miniseries, titled The Reagans, may inaccurately portray the couple... While [RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie] - who acknowledged that he has not seen The Reagans and has formed his opinion of it based solely on news reports - had a number of complaints, he said he was most concerned about a comment attributed to Reagan in one episode. There is no evidence that the President told his wife during a conversation about AIDS patients, 'They that live in sin shall die in sin,' Gillespie said." [True, but Reagan's official biographer quotes him as saying, "Maybe the Lord brought down this plague... [because] illicit sex is against the Ten Commandments." (Dutch, p. 458)]

The Pentagon Crosses the Lexicon
MSNBC | Submitted by: Mr. Farmer
"But certain words and phrases, descriptive nouns like bomb and ambush, along with less surprising terms like WMD, are missing in action, at least from the Pentagonís briefings... This creeping realism,or, if you prefer a military coinage, counter-optimism, has led some staunch supporters of the Bush administration to question whether they are being told the truth about the situation on the ground."

British soldier gets top medal for resisting US warplane
London Telegraph | Submitted by: Cliff in HK
"The MoD announced more than 300 honours yesterday for servicemen and women who served on Operation Telic, the British contribution to the war in Iraq. They included a George Cross, awarded to Trooper Christopher Finney of the Blues and Royals." It would have been a Victoria Cross, the country's highest award, but for the fact that his heroism was not under enemy fire, it was from a US plane that attacked his convoy twice: dayglo patches and British flags were not enough to prevent US pilot failing to note they were Brits.
