detailedrecruiter.blogspot.com/2007/03/another-missive.html • One shouldn't need delve into a newsman's sources, but this blogger recognizes the more a lie is repeated the more likely it is to become a “truth.” This instance indicates a reporter in pursuit of an easy story. The depth of Dugan's “inside experience” is shallow at best, and the reluctance of Osman to concede this obvious point is just more laziness. The real lack of integrity of course belongs to the self-professed recruiter/protestor. He certainly is no credit to the Corps or the anti-war movement, but a willingness to inflate his background and to flaunt his own hypocrisy made him a useful tool to both. By his admission, “If I recruited someone, that would help me...So I'm willing to manipulate the truth for these people.” He may well now flex and preen at his perceived status as an anti-war spokesman, as he likely did while he was climbing the ladder on the other side of the fence.
