Circular confirmation?
Gen. Tommy Franks has been speaking to the press corps in Qatar. One topic was the human shields the Iraqis have allegedly been using, made up of civilians. While that regime of thugs is capable of far worse, has there actually been any evidence of human shields?

Franks then said that "embedded" journalists (why does "embedded" sound like "in bed with"?) had confirmed it.

Perhaps they did and I missed that, but the last I heard on the topic was when CNN's Walter Rodgers was heading northwards towards Karbala. He cited soldiers with whom he was riding to confirm his claim. Was Franks citing Rodgers citing Franks' soldiers?
