--Senator James Inhofe, talking about coverage of the Iraq war in 2005.
"If you rely on the media and the distorted way in which the media is reporting what's going on there, you're not going to get a very good idea of what's really going on. I can remember so well spending one whole trip in the Sunni triangle, in Fallujah, just talked to the troops there ... And the former brigade commander that hated Americans—he was a brigade commander for Saddam Hussein—now, after having experienced embedded training with our Marines over there, has totally changed his mind. He loves them. He actually cried when the rotation came. I mean, these things are actually happening over there. He renamed the Fallujah security forces the 'Fallujah Marines.'"
