CNN attempts to smear Marine Officers
Being out and about today getting a flu shot with a couple of shipmates, we had the opportunity to watch some CNN and the reports about the 8 months pregnant Marine who is missing and presumed killed. CNN, in their usual anti-military fashion, was featuring a scroll, during the Sheriff's press conference, saying she had "accused a superior officer of raping her." Unfamiliar with the case, I caught a little audio saying she was a Lance Corporal, and jokingly mentioned to my co-workers, I bet he's a Corporal and CNN wants everyone in America to think this was a a superior officer. Well, now that I am back in my room and able to watch Fox News, I am vindicated, the accused was....a Corporal. CNN has this right over at cnn.com, but, shame on CNN for their either ignorant, or scurrilous attempts to make it seem that this was an act between an Officer and a junior enlisted person, vice what were essentially two co-workers.
