LTC Kuirlla Thinks MSM is Failing the Public

LTC Erik Kuirlla of the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment, AKA Deuce Four” was seriously injured in Mosul in a dramatic battle. Read about the battle in Michael Yon’s Dispatch “Gates of Fire.”

Michael writes in his dispatch “Battle for Mosul: Progress Report,”

In between the daily secret reports Kurilla has brought to his hospital room so he can track his battalion, the Commander watches television news, increasingly frustrated by what he sees as a clear, and inaccurate, negative bias. “When you get the news back here in the states, it’s all doom and body counts. I only wish the American public could see the incredible progress that is being made every day in Iraq, particularly in places like Mosul.”
