This has nothing to do with Jessica Lynch, who served her country, was wounded in combat, and was, for a brief time, a prisoner of war in Iraq, but rather with those who would exploit her story to further their own agenda (or stuff their wallets). The story, as originally told, is a bunch of hooey. Salon has a story today that confronts the lies, albeit in a format that’s pretty lame. There’s also this Guardian story, but it discusses fewer of the inaccuracies than the Salon article.
