Reaction Of Soldiers In Iraq To Anti-Surge Resolution

ABC News included reactions of soldiers in Iraq in its coverage of the Democrats’ non-binding anti-surge resolution. Newsbusters has extensive quotes, pictures and link to video:

Of the broadcast network evening newscast stories Tuesday night on the House debate over the non-binding resolution that “disapproves of the decision of President George W. Bush…to deploy more than 20,000 additional United States combat troops to Iraq,” only ABC’s Jake Tapper included the views of soldiers in Iraq. Tapper’s report on World News featured soundbites from two Army Sergeants in Ramadi, and both condemned the resolution. First Sergeant Louis Barnum declared: “It makes me sick. I was born and raised a Democrat, but when I see that it just kind of makes me sad.” Sergeant Brian Orzechoski went even further: “I don’t want to bad-mouth the President at all. I mean, to me it’s treason.”
