Over many years I occasionally trod the ground at Stuttgart Army
Airfield in Stuttgart-Echterdingen, Germany. A macabre discovery at
the airfield has unnerved all of us who served there or visited
there, however briefly. Workers rebuilding the entrance of the
field, as part of an upgrade for new security standards, found a
shallow mass grave last Monday, and exhumed human remains Monday
"We didn't actually hover an Osprey over a mosque."
Source: Bell Helicopter VP Mike Cox, in
response to an advertisement published last month, and again by
accident last week, depicting a hovering CV-22 Osprey deploying
troops onto the smoking roof of an Islamic mosque. Bell Helicopter,
Boeing, and the National Journal magazine have come under fire from
Islamic rights organizations for the ad, saying such an image
fuels the cause of Muslim extremists against the US.
