I agree with most of what 'Matt' states, except the fabrication of 911. However, I think that the 15 have been given permission by the Navy to sell their stories, so long as they agree to a version of events that allows the Blair Government and the Naval high command and themselves to come out smelling of roses. Their version will, of necessity, be sexed up, because it will be impossible to prove one way or the other whether they are telling the truth. Being killed or captured is a occupational hazard for combatants. Their version of events regarding their time under capture is a matter for themselves and Naval High Command, and is given at the time of de-briefing. As they were serving marines, there was no story to tell, and they and the media, shouldn't have been allowed to invent one. Some people keep saying that what they did was brave. HOW/WHY. That is a bit like saying, "being knocked down by a bus is brave". All they did was try to survive, which is what any of us would do. I think that the media are guilty of blurring the distinction between reality and entertainment.
