Then there's this: Since the initial release, Mint Press News has edited the article, making clear that the piece was written by Yahya Ababneh and not Dale Gavlak. Even more concerning, this appears to have been the sole piece ever written by Yahya Ababneh for the Mint Press News. Mr. Ababnah had previously written for other news agencies, ones which had praised the 9/11 attacks.

I can't believe the crap that is being past to us as 'fact' from the current administration.

Another question is how many civilians will die if nothing is done?

Now now, no talk of civilian deaths. It must only be referred as "collateral damage". We must keep terms describing our actions both sterile and politically correct. That was one very important lesson we learned in Iraq.
