Salon takes a closer look

Salon takes a closer look at saving Pfc. Lynch, the female POW from West Virginia. The story is reminiscent of one Salon ran a few years ago which debunked a lot of Columbine myths. One allegation: a few days before the rescue, hospital staff attempted to drive Jessica to the American checkpoint only 1 km away. But, when they got close, they were fired upon, so they had to turn around and go back to the hospital.

Oddly, the piece is framed as a satire, as if to avoid being offensive. [click through ads]

More on the same story from the BBC.
