Don’t believe the MSM — either their lying by entirely omitting any
mention of the numbers of people attending the Gathering of Eagles, or
their deliberate playing down of the numbers who did come. The Parks
and Service people counted thirty thousand patriots (30,000) gathered to protect the Wall.
The "anti-war" protest had only ten thousand.
This protest had been professionally planned over the past year
and a grass roots organization of veterans - an effort lasting only 2 months
had 3 times as many folks in Washington DC.
Not all of the veterans support the war in Iraq, but they all wanted to prevent vandalism and destruction of the memorials to our war dead.
