Wounded Sergeant Fights for a 'Best Friend'

I'm tempted to dismiss this as just one of a gazillion Bush's fault/heartless brainless U.S. military stories from MSM. And likely it is? Still a good read none the less.

WaPo-They had trained together for three years in the military ..... In June, they arrived in Iraq ..... scouring houses and villages for hidden explosives. Then, one afternoon ..... a roadside bomb went off under their Humvee.

Air Force Tech. Sgt. Jamie Dana was critically injured -- bleeding internally, her lungs collapsed, her spine fractured, her pelvis broken. In her last moment of consciousness, she asked ..... "Where's Rex?" ..... When no one answered, she grabbed a medic's arm. "Where's my dog? Is he dead?" The medic told her that he was.

Weeks passed before Dana would understand that the medic was mistaken and that Rex was alive. Not long after she started to rally from her injuries, Dana asked Air Force leaders if she could adopt Rex. The answer was no; it was against the rules, and Rex was still valuable to the military. Now, the Air Force has changed its view -- but federal law stands in the way.

Check out a funny site dedicated to the absurdity and satire nature of saying "It's All George Bush's Fault!"
