"Midwest Heroes"

John Hinderaker of Powerline linked yesterday to a great video from Progress For America called Midwest Heroes.

The brief video, which you may have seen as a television ad during the Olympics, features three Iraq War Veterans talking about why we're there:

You'd never know it from the news reports, but our enemy in Iraq is al Qaeda - the same terrorists who killed three thousand Americans on 9/11, the same terrorists from the first World Trade Center bombing, the USS Cole, Madrid, London, and many more.

For a glimpse into the by now familiar and tiresome parallel universe which exists in some minds, read John's entire article on the smear job being done on this video by Minneapolis Star Tribune columnist Nick Coleman.
