Michael Ubaldi, December 28, 2004.
Leading the pack as usual, Special Report with Brit Hume's substitute Jim Angle interviewed former Marine Lieutenant Karl Blanke at the end of the program's first half tonight. Blanke served two tours of duty in Iraq, one during the initial drive toppling the Ba'athist regime and a second earlier this year. He did well, challenging the left's media-borne caricature of Iraq's democratization on every point [with what truly was and is]: from ecstatic throngs filling streets while American soldiers battled the Republican Guard in 2003, to Iraqis' painful mental and physical scars assuaged only by hope and benevolence, to the enduring rightfulness and anticipated success of the campaign.
