This ad thanking the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan was blocked from being aired on NBC. The funny thing is, it has no political messages in it whatsoever, yet NBC refuses to air it. Since it fails to portray our soldiers as more than the low-income, uneducated, toothless, rapists their news programs have depicted them as, they have chosen to "redact" it so their viewers cannot hear the truth about what the soldiers are really doing in the war on terror. The folks at NBC should absolutely be ashamed of themselves. But then again, what else would you expect from a network that has broadcast 100% negative news coverage of the Iraq war over the last five years and launched relentless hit pieces about the failures in American foreign policy and the carnage in Baghdad while completely ignoring the enormous strides our troops have made over there. It doesn't get much worse than this.
