Topic: NBC's Saving Jessica Lynch


All I can say was that the dialouge was horrible, although I thought the screenplay went rather well. The accuracy of the battle seen seems off as the convoy was suppose to be in a bridge seeting with morter pitts and sand beams on the sides. PFC Miller (The Real Hero) is shown killing at least half a dozen Iraqi's, which is right, although the circumstances of his actions are wrong. In real life he fed manual rounds into his M-16 while engaging iraqi's setting up a mortar, but in the movie he just sprayes the area. Jessica Lynch does not fire her weapon, as does no other woman (Historically accurate) No mention of the "blond, man/woman who fought to the death.

Anyone else see it?

Haven't seen the movie yet, but I found the commercial for it on NBC.com
http://www.nbc.com/nbc/Saving_Jessica_Lynch/
http://www.nbc.com/nbc/Movies_&_Specials/
"Based on the true story...."
"The heroic rescue......"
"SAVING JESSICA LYNCH"
"The dramatic rescue of Pfc. Jessica Lynch...."
"Her story of heroism....."
blablablablablah...

HELLO.... What a bunch of Bu..Sh.t....
It's really provoking that they still can't admit that the whole "rescue" operation was fake.
Making a movie like this puts the real heroes of the Iraq war in a bad situation, because we can't really believe what's real and what's not anymore...

But it's great that Pfc. Patrick Miller gets more attention in this film.
According to an Army report he killed as much as 9 Iraqis befor he was captures.
He should have been the hero of this story in the first place!

Even Jessica Lynch herself is condemning Pentagon now

I heard Jessica Lynch's staments are going to be harsh on ABC, apparently she really gets on the Pentagon. Lets not foget that the MEDIA is as responsible for this craze as much or more then the Pentagon. They took the interpritation of a "blond woman(turns out the Iraqi's used the wrong pronoun) fighting to the death" way to far. PFC Miller was thought dead until two months ago, when the Baltimore Sun uncovered the true story. Considering Lynhc's reward, he should of gotten the Medal of Honer.

When is she appearing on ABC?

I agree that the Media is very much responsible for much of this, but the whole "heroic rescue" operation, with SOF's firing blanks and all that was the beginning of it all...
And the Bronze star thing was the last drop that p..sed of most of the military world..

What did really happen to Miller?
Haven't heard much about him.

He is still a PFC working at a moter Pool in a fort in Colerado. He won the silver star for bravery, although the way the army passes those out he shoulda got a DSC.

Jessica will appear on ABC's Primetime on Tuesday night. I admit the Rescue was overdone, but a certain degree of OPSEC has to be maintained, so regardless of how much b******tting went into it, it was a success.

The problem I have with her going after the Pentagon is that she doesn't have anything to blame them for. She has allowed herself to be used in a sense by taking all the endorsments, and the wrong turn they took is dou to faults on the Componey level. The "blond haired" woman is now belived to be a "blond haired man" who I can't remember the name of. Two bad obody saw what he did, from what Ive been able to gather his scarfice was reminiscant of Gary Gordon and Randy Shughart.

I hope that "Saving Jessica Lynch" comes on one of the scandinavian channels.
It sounds like an interesting thing.

Did you see the movie Gaurdsman? Yea, if you want a good take on the "other" heroes check out today's Wall Street Journal front page, there a good article in there about a guy who did alot more, and why Lynch is getting the credit. The guy is not PFC Miller btw...
