FNC exclusive just reported. Lynch can't remember anything about the events of her capture or ordeal as a POW.

if thats true, then its probably a damn good thing

My guess is she has been instructed to keep quiet. I bet when she gets her medical disability discharge her memory comes back. Either that or she has made her movie/book deal and is keeping the true story silent until they are released.

That frees up the screenwriters considerably, doesn't it??? [:D]

Considering one usually has to be conscious to acquire memory, I doubt she has much to forget. She was probably rendered unconscious prior to being captured, and was likely drugged / out from pain most of here time in the "hospital." That is likely what kept her alive, so it worked for her. Won't work too well for a Lifetime TV mini-serries, though.

Besides being shot with a small caliber round in numerous places and other torture, I think she was sexually assaulted as well. Memory loss is not uncommon in that type of situation cause women tend to want to forget [i]that[/i] stuff.

Don't a fair number of people involved in trauma forget what happened?

I doubt she was raped; molested, perhaps. These [b]are[/b] muslims we're dealing with, not heathens.

[stick] What kind of space cadet are you? A little explanation. The muslims are the ones that maintain Harems. The muslims are the ones behind the international sex slave rings. She is a beautiful young blonde, the primary target. Part of the crimes reported by the populace against their military was of raping the women. 2 probable causes of the amnesia are unconciousness and shock. I pray for her that as the memories come back, they do not do too much damage. I pray that she can live as normal a life as is possible. This young lady wants to be a school teacher, so obviously has a love of children. I hope that her experiences do not interfere with her conception of children of her own or cause psychological problems that will cause her to be unable to teach.

This has nothing to do with Muslims. The Serbs (Christians) used rape as a tactic to terrorize Muslims in the Balkans. The Iraqi government used rape as a terror tool against their own people. If I remember right there were reports the female doctor captured by Iraq in the first Gulf War was repeatedly raped. In the case of the Iraqi government you are dealing with deranged animals.

She wasn't shot. "On his first visit, Mohammed slipped into Jessica's room after her captor had left. She was lying in bed, a blanket drawn up to her chin, he said. There was a bandage on her head, and one arm was in a sling. Mohammed said she had gunshot wounds to both legs.

You say that with quite a sense of confidence. We still don't know squat! Initial reports in the fog of war combined with a media feding frenzy mean absolutely nothing. Anybody "in the know" has not been talking. All will come out in the wash. Most people in my line of work prefer not to feed the media trolls.

If I were caught in the kind of media circus she's in, I'd develop 'amnesia' too... Maybe she just wants to get rid of the reporters, publishers, etc... and get on with life...

I beg to differ. [url=www.herald-dispatch.com/2003/April/05/LNspot.htm]According to this[/url] the military hospital announced that upon inspection of her injuries they discovered that she had been shot in one arm and one leg with "small caliber, low velocity" rounds.

Very true Max_Mike, rape is not a characteristic of any religion, besides, what is are do you think the religions are of the people who run US Sex rings?

Temporary memory loss is a common occurrence in very traumatic incidents. Even people involved in automobile accidents sometimes suffer from it. IIRC, the Central Park jogger who was raped and very nearly killed in NYC 10 years or so ago has still never remembered what happened to her. Also, before anyone get too smug about Muslims raping women they might want to look at the number of rapes reported in the good old US of A!! Granted, we take it a lot more seriously than some Muslim countries where they actually blame the victim!! And I guess everyone has conveniently forgotten the US service members who raped a child in, IIRC, Okinawa a few years ago.

President Reagan? President Clinton? Are we traveling familiar ground here? Just curious...

WTF are you talking about being "smug" [b]199[/b]? We're talking about what the Iraqi Gov't does to it's citizens - not what citizens do to each other [stick]
[url=http://usinfo.state.gov/regional/nea/iraq/text/1009irwom.htm]Iraqi Women Speak Out about Life under Saddam's Dictatorship [/url] October, 2002 Washington ? In 1991, Sabria Mahdi Naama and her children found themselves fleeing for their lives from their native land, Iraq. Her husband, Abbas Kareem Naama, had been gone for months and she had no idea if he was alive or dead. Naama brought a National Press Club audience to tears October 4 as she recounted her family's arduous journey to freedom after months of hiding from Saddam Hussein's security forces. . . . A country where people are ethnically cleansed ... rape is systematic . . . congenital malformation, birth defects, infertility, cancer and various disorders are the results of Saddam's gassing of his own people ... the killing and torturing of husbands in front of their wives and children occurs ... Iraq under Saddam has become a hell and a museum of crimes," Al Souhail said. . . . "The heads of many women have been publicly cut off in the streets under the pretext of being liars, while in fact they mostly belonged to families opposing the Iraqi regime. Women, especially dissident women, have been raped by members of Saddam Hussein's gang ... The wives of dissidents have been either killed or tortured in front of their husbands in order to obtain confessions from their husbands . . . Women have been kidnapped as they walk in the streets by members of the gangs of Uday and Qusay [Saddam?s sons] and then raped," Shallal said.

?? I just don’t see that in the posts [b]above[/b] mine, excepting [b]Max_Mike[/b]’s, which I basically agree with. If you’re limiting this to Iraqi government policy and not Muslims in general, then I agree with you!! (Which just shows what an easy-going guy I am!! [:D] )

Actually I WAS just referring to what (probably) happened to Pfc Lynch and the MoslemMaggots in the Iraqi Gov't/military who committed those acts rather than ALL Muslims. I'm sure that out of a BILLION Muslims, there are those that don't act like savage, inhuman, medieval barbarians. [:)]

After the last war ALL of the female POW's "forgot" about getting raped and abused for several years. I am sure it was "recommended" she "forget" about her ordeal while we are trying to rebuild Iraq. This will maintain positive public image for the government. Later, she will "remember" in time for a movie or book deal.
