American Soldiers to Harry Reid: SHUT UP

From an American soldier in Baghdad to United States Senator Harry Reid:

To be brief, your words are killing us. Your statements make the Iraqis afraid to help us for fear we'll leave them unprotected in the future. They don't report a cache, and its weapons blow up my friends in a convoy. They don't report a foreign fighter, and that fighter sends a mortar onto my base. Your statements are noticed, and they have an effect.

Finally, you are mistaken when you say we are losing. We are winning, I see it every day. However, we will win with fewer casualties if you help us. Will you?


LT Jason Nichols,
MNF-I, Baghdad
Thanks to Michelle Malkin.

Sen. Reid, have you no shame, sir?
