US 'Smuggles Wounded Troops Home' Under Cover of Darkness


It's easy not to care about something if you're entirely ignorant of it. The lengths to which this administration has gone to sanitize this dirty, filthy war is remarkable.

"Just as the Bush administration has banned the media from taking photographs of the coffins of American troops killed in Iraq as they arrive in the US, opponents say it is now trying to cover up the number of wounded.

'The American public has very limited information about the real impact of this war,' said Ellen Taylor, a spokeswoman for Code Pink, a peace group that has been protesting outside the Walter Reed military hospital in Washington, where the bulk of the wounded are taken. 'I think that a lot of information about this war is being kept from the public. That is what we are protesting about.'"
