The U.S. military on Sunday said it was looking into how virtually identical quotations ended up in two of its news releases about different insurgent attacks. In each case the military quoted an Iraqi calling the attackers “enemies of humanity” and vowing to “take the fight to the terrorists,” according to a CNN report.

Following a car bombing in Baghdad on Sunday, the U.S. military issued a statement with a quote attributed to an unidentified Iraqi that was virtually identical to a quote reacting to an attack on July 13.

After questioning by reporters, the military released the statement without the quote.

Lt. Col. Clifford Kent, spokesman for the U.S. Army’s 3rd Infantry Division, said use of the quote was an “administrative error.”

Perhaps they’re simply 2 huge Bush fans, and like to clip out quotes from the President’s speeches.

I tracked down and contacted one of the two Iraqis. He said that he remains committed to “tracking down the Evil-Doers”. Asked if he had made any mistakes in the past four years, he could not think of anything.
