'Phony soldiers' clarified

I must respond to Steven Ireland's letter regarding Rush Limbaugh's comments about phony soldiers (Readers Forum, Oct. 11). If Ireland thinks Rush edits his video and transcripts, but Media Matters does not, I have some beautiful beach-front property in Wyoming I would like him to buy.

And I wonder why he didn't mention anything about the ABC news report about phony soldiers that aired a day or two prior to Rush's comments, unless his source material is Media Matters. There are people who claimed to have been in Iraq who never made it out of basic training. Those are the phony soldiers reported about by ABC and later discussed by Rush.
