Troofers to Send Mail to Troops in Iraq

Nope they aren’t care packages; instead this group plans to bombard our troops with conspiracy theory letters and DVD’s about how 9/11 was an “inside job”:

U.S. troops serving in Iraq may be getting more letters during mail call, but they won’t be care packages — one group is sending them letters and DVDs claiming 9/11 was an “inside job” and that they should rethink why they’re fighting.

Mark Dice, founder of The Resistance, which he calls a media watchdog group, says that the U.S. government was responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and that the armed forces should know it.

“People want the facts. The Marines are hungry for the truth — what got them there [in Iraq], why are they risking their lives — and we’re going to help them understand that,” he told FOX News.

Dice plans to send letters and declassified government documents that he says can prove the government’s responsibility for the terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people — and he’s urging others to do the same.

This statement of non-fact really made me laugh and I love the response from Vets For Freedom:

Dice says he is convinced that many servicemen share his views. “The Marines that I know say that 20-25 percent of the Marines believe that 9/11 was an inside job and they’re very angry,” he said.

Hegseth, however, wasn’t convinced. “We represent 24,000 veterans at Vets for Freedom,” he said. “We believe in finishing this mission, we believe in what we’re doing and that’s how most veterans and troops on the ground feel.”

I doubt that this will effect the troops in any way other than to give them a much needed laugh (though I am sure they would love to get some care packages instead).

It is people like this guy that have lead me to say that I don’t doubt their support of the troops; I only question whose troops they support.

On a brighter note, If you would like to help out here are a list of some of the places you can get in touch with for sending “real” care packages:
