Here is a brief snipet of an interview with soon to be CBS evening news anchor Katie Couric and USMC Sniper.

Couric: "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist."

Marine: "Recoil"

Hellz yea.

Not the same one but this is a Marine Sniper that got a bronze star.

Urban legend. It's been on snopes for a while: www.snopes.com/politics/war/recoil.asp.

Did you get this in an email?

Maybe if we all pony up for platinum, Juan can take the time to code a server-side keyword filter for dupes

I tend to disbelieve this. Most sniper types are NCOs and tend to clam up around reporters.

OTOH, it might be true.

BWT that line goes AT LEAST as far back as the Vietnam war.

Old and BS, but it's still pretty funny.
