At this point I agree with that assesment. Even common sense has
gone from our military leaders. They fail to realize that 'The
_Original_ Mission' in Iraq is already over. Saddam is gone and
no WMDs. Time to call it quits and leave. Mainstream media
should be bouncing all over this also... but it isn't. If
mainstream media was _really_ news as you say further below...
they might be.

I agree read books or look on the web with discerning eyes.
It seems _all_ media is turned one way or another by slanted
reporting, as an X-Conference TV coverage piece shows in a post
later... no mention of the presenters and _their_ proof... just
more cheesy 1950's re-runs and of course Independance Day
footage. Message... aliens are bad... and it's bad and crazy
to be a _believer_ in them.
