Cameron Maasen, a soldier who was in the audience, shares his experience: I was actually over there and ... we had Iraqis come on the post that I was at every day and the little bit of English that they could speak, they were just praising us, you know. And you don't see about that. You don't hear about that. [Instead, the news would show] a video of Marines shooting around a corner. You'd see that same shot 10, 12 times within two hours. And you never see the schools that we're building and the people who we're helping and all the hospitals we were helping build.
