    The Jessica Lynch thing... Real, trumped up, real but exaggerated? Below are some links to stories surrounding her:

    This one I'd not seen till looking for news...

    This one was just weird...

    I'm having trouble finding the one that reported an attempt the day before to deliver Jessica to the US forces in an ambulance that was turned away, anyone have a link? Also assuming that the official version of the rescue is well know so didn't look for a link to that.

    The Jessica Lynch event was one of many lies the Bush administration got away with.

    Not one investigation.
