Returned wounded, vet disses the Shrub

As reported in the Washington Post, Terry Rodgers, who lost buddies and was himself severely wounded when his Humvee was hit by an IED, refused to see Bush during a hospital visit.

""I don't want anything to do with him," he explains. "My belief is that his ego is getting people killed and mutilated for no reason -- just his ego and his reputation. If we really wanted to, we could pull out of Iraq. Maybe not completely but enough that we wouldn't be losing people -- at least not at this rate. So I think he himself is responsible for quite a few American deaths."

That won't hit CNN, but it's the truth: nobody knows better than the grunts and the Gold Star families just how specious this war is.
