Dave Terron sent the link to this post at NewsBusters:
...Lauer interviewed a group of soldiers at Camp Liberty in Baghdad, and at one point asked about the state of morale. After getting two responses to the effect that morale was good, Lauer had this to say:
"Don't get me wrong, I think you're probably telling the truth, but there might be a lot of people at home wondering how that could be possible with the conditions you're facing and with the insurgent attacks you're facing. "...
After probing for a different opinion, Lauer got an answer from Sherman Powell that you can see over at NewsBusters:
"Well sir, I'd tell you, if I got my news from the newspapers also I'd be pretty depressed as well!"
