    Re: N.Y.T. Reporter, gets a Soldier Killed.

    This is the second time this New York Times turd has been captured, there's a growing pattern here. Plus four decent people were killed in the process, overshadowing the death of the Taliban commander. This jerk should be brought up on charges of negligent homicide or something. This isn't free of speech, this asshole needs to be punished, but good.

    Like that's going to happen. Imagine what the NYT headlines would have been.

    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Sometimes a story has to be told.

    Farrell however has shown serious incompetence and disregard for the consequences of his actions on other people. If journalists have a licence then his should be revoked. Not only did he disregard warnings from miltary personell - he ignored the advice of an Afghan villager who tried to warn him and his translator that the Taleban were on the way.

    Tragic loss for the UK Special Forces.

    One senior Army source said: “When you look at the number of warnings this person had it makes you really wonder whether he was worth rescuing, whether it was worth the cost of a soldier’s life. In the future special forces might think twice in a similar situation.”

    Another military source said: “This reporter went to this area against the advice of the Afghan police. So thanks very much Stephen Farrell, your irresponsible act has led to the death of one of our boys.”
    Should have left the dumbass there to die. He is not worth risking soldier lives especially seeing the ****wit got warned how dangerous it was.

    As one who served in the company of "50" reporters in the 1st gulf war, I disagree.... 100 aint worth one.

    Conservatives still cling to silly, outdated ideas like "evil savages are dangerous," so probably would have been bright enough to avoid them.
    So you admit that Fox News is extremely biased?

    Saving one Reporter is very important, since they are the ones who invented or exagarated bad news and basically lost the war in Vietnam for the US army. So perhaps this idiot can will now write some pro Military stories and junk.
