The bottom line

"The bottom line is the American people are capable of determining their own ideals of heroes and they don't need to be told elaborate tales."

Private Jessica Lynch, whose story from the early days of the Iraq invasion you may recall, speaking today to Congress alongside members of Pat Tillman's family.

The converse of that is also true. That the American people are capable of discerning bullshit stories about imaginary victories in faraway places, and judging the spreaders of that bullshit.
