olivernorth.jpg While usually being a big GOP propagandist, North did report that the troops he was covering for FOX were against the troop escalation. Friday night, he said that McCain and Lieberman both talked to the same people he did about the escalation and they were against it.

North: I was there with the same guys who briefed John McCain and Joe Lieberman and they told those two guys the same thing. And they walked out of the briefing and said they wanted 20,000 more troops. Now go figure. And I know that's what was said because I lived with those same guys...

He wonders why they advocated the exact opposite. So do I? McCain and Lieberman have been crying to the press that this is the only tact left for the US, And we're not supporting the troops if we even speak out against the troop increase. So how come the people that briefed them said the opposite? Will the press investigate?

Can you help us out?
