Your tax dollars at work in the war over information

Dear government,

Why haven't I been contacted by a PR firm hired by you to disseminate "exclusive content" in the blogging of the Iraq War? I am a half-decent writer, a veteran of the war (unlike Fuzzybear Lioness), and a patriot. I swear to only tell the whole truth, and to be ethical.

Sincerely,
One Veteran

UPDATE
See William Arkin's take on it. If you decide to go to the Lioness's blog and comment, make sure to play nice. She raises money for wounded soldiers, and that is very admirable. She also disclosed that she recieved the offer, which is ethical.

Brian, your truthfulness is what disqualifies you.

This P.R. nonsense is getting out of hand.

I'd hire ya.

Well, as Elmo said, if not for that whole "tells the truth" thing. Not very good for profits. Or Prophets.

You said a bad word. Ethics. That does not jive with propaganda.

Where is your experience in this other than the pictures and videos? Those only appeal to one sense. Commentary on the current state of uzbekibush isn't woth as much as it used to be. To be noticed, you need substance and something original.This approach doesn't cut it.

Another brave anonymous naysayer.

I love all you guys, seriously.

Read "Building Walls" and tell me I'm just here to bash Bush(although I'll continue to do that as well)

Thanks for your your kind words, and your request that visitors "play nice." I encourage your visitors to check out the 501(c)(3) charity linked on my blog that you mentioned (www.soldiersangels.org/valour). It provides voice-activated laptops to soldiers with hand and arms wounds.
