"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.'"

--Senator James Inhofe, talking about coverage of the Iraq war in 2005.
