Support the troops

Some American former prisoners of war have been awarded $1 billion compensation from Iraq by a Federal judge.

And Bush is trying to screw them out of it.

The Bush administration is fighting the former prisoners of war in court, trying to prevent them from collecting nearly $1 billion from Iraq that a federal judge awarded them as compensation for their torture at the hands of Saddam Hussein's regime....

"It seems so strange to have our own country fighting us on this," said retired Air Force Col. David W. Eberly, the senior officer among the former POWs.

"No amount of money can truly compensate these brave men and women for the suffering that they went through at the hands of this very brutal regime and at the hands of Saddam Hussein," White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan told reporters when asked about the case in November 2003.

So that exactly what the Bushies are trying to make sure they get - no amount of money.

Now watch the right-wingers and Bushites attack and vilify these former POWs. As they attack ANY soldier who makes Bush look bad.
