Flynt had announced just the day before, that he was going to run the sensational pix on the pages of his raunchy publication. He said he wanted to show his readers that Lynch “. . . was not a Joan of Arc.”
But 24 hours later, the porn king claimed he’d changed his mind because “she’s a good kid” who has become “a pawn for the government.”
MORE USEFUL BASHING BUSH
Political observers told MilitaryCorruption.com that Flynt realizes Lynch is a far more valuable commodity criticizing the war in Iraq and President George Bush, than as a nude pin-up in his skin magazine. Anyway, he can always “change his mind” again later on.
We who work at this web site are no fans of the Bush Administration. In fact, the Republicans have been more hostile and indifferent to veterans – trying to block reform of the Concurrent Receipt Law for example – than even Bill “I loathe the military” Clinton ever thought of being!
In regard to the war in Iraq, we feel the arrogant and duplicitous Donald Rumsfeld should be fired. While we support the ouster of the brutal dictator Saddam Hussein and back all our troops in harm’s way, we will not pull punches in criticizing a failed foreign policy that could leave us “quagmired” in Vietnam, oops, we mean Iraq, for many years to come.
A “FREE PASS” ON THE NUDE PIX
But Flynt is giving “baby-faced” JE$$ICA a free pass on the nude pix. After all, the Army went overboard creating her image as a “heroine,” presented her with the Bronze Star, and used her for their propaganda ends. In turn, she has reaped a huge financial bonanza that other members of her Army unit, who aren’t blond, blue-eyed and pretty, will never see.
So why shouldn’t the American people know if the former PFC cavorted naked with male soldiers in a barracks at Fort Bliss? That’s still a violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), isn’t it? Not that we want the Army to bring her back on duty and punish her. That would be ridiculous. But JE$$ICA’s “innocent virgin” image is false. If she’s going to enjoy the benefits of being a “media darling,” and play the role, she should take responsibility for her past mistakes as well.
As for Flynt, if JE$$ICA is not sufficiently critical of his nemesis George Bush, the pornmiester can always use the threat of publishing the photos after all, to get his way. A well-placed liberal told us not to be surprised if Lynch “ends up campaigning for one of the Democrat candidates for President in 2004, especially if the public has further soured on the slow pace of the war in Iraq.”
THE SANCTIMONIOUS SMUT PEDDLER
Leave it to Larry to wrap himself in a cloak of self-righteousness as he wipes the slime off his paws.
“My first intention was to publish them [the nude photos], but I don’t think it would be the best, most positive move I could make,” Flynt sanctimoniously told The Associated Press.
The porn publisher didn’t disclose what he’d paid for the pix but said he’d locked the photos in a vault for safekeeping.
LYNCH CAMP DOES DAMAGE CONTROL
“It’s incredulous that anyone would think it appropriate in any way to attempt to publish unauthorized photos of Jessica – photos taken before she was deployed to Iraq and before her capture and rescue,” Lynch lawyer Stephen Goodwin said in a prepared statement.
As for JE$$ICA, she had no comment on the nude pix.
Initial reports from selected bookstores across the United States on November 11, show very slow sales for “I AM A SOLDIER, TOO: THE STORY OF PFC JESSICA LYNCH.”
