Because where else do you get quality entertainment like this:
As some of you know, I recently returned from Iraq. This Bob Woodruff story has been bothering me. Something about it stinks.
I have a theory about what likely happened. I think it’s worse than we know.
Update – I suspect that Bob Woodruff was set up by insurgent spies working within the Iraqi Army, and that the US Military was unable to protect him. I want to be clear, this is no conspiracy theory.***
Tonight is the State of the Union Address. I believe that Woodruff was meant to be embedded with an IA unit in order to give the impression that the IA is making “good progress” in “standing up” so that the US can “stand down”. Of course it’s all a con game. I believe Bob Woodruff fell victim to an ill conceived attempt at propaganda.***
Now look, I know I am speculating. But I don’t think you people know how unlikely this attack was to be random. The area Woodruff was in is not that bad. It’s not as if every single convoy gets nailed every time out. In 11 months, my vehicle was never directly targeted. The odds that the insurgents would happen to hit that particular convoy in that particular area is remote. The odds that they would hit Woodruff’s vehicle is also a long shot. And they must have hit it hard. They inflicted serious injury on personel who were riding in a well protected vehicle. Naturally the Army wouldn’t send Wooodruff out in a Toyota, they sent him out in a vehicle that was a hard target.***
I do not believe, nor will I entertain, any conspiracy theories. Just to be clear…
Just to be clear, I don’t think this poor dear has the first clue what a conspiracy theory is, because if this ain’t one, I don’t know what is.
