As a veteran, I was appalled to learn of Matt Apuzzo’s Associated Press filing which resulted in at lest three articles (see below) being printed as “fact” in numerous major news media outlets:

According to my friends at Red State.com, it appears:
(a) Mr. Apuzzo is selling a conclusion that was supported by neither the data nor the researchers;
(b) Mr. Apuzzo’s Math Kung Fu is weak; and
(c) Mr. Apuzzo shares with his AP colleagues a virulent disdain for the military which leads them to make up stuff like this.
See the rest of their analysis here. It’s well worth your time.
