Speculation About War Rumor May Be True

Speculation About War Rumor May Be True By Scott Ott: (2003-04-07) — War correspondents were stunned today when speculation by a retired Pentagon planner about a rumor attributed to a anonymous captain somewhere near the front showed early signs of being true.

While evidence of the veracity of the rumor has yet to be corroborated, an unnamed spokesman at an undisclosed location in Qatar declined to deny “the letter, if not the spirit of the story.”

Journalists quickly conducted a battery of interviews with other reporters to “get the pulse of the profession” about what may be the first incident of its kind in recent memory.

No one could be reached for comment on this developing story.
