DNC Still Can't Find An American Soldier To Support

The Democratic Party website has been changed since the discovery that they used a picture of a Canadian soldier on the page that proclaimed their support for "our troops". Apparently, though, they still can't find a picture of an American soldier to support:

Does anyone at the DNC know what an American soldier looks like? They accuse the Republicans of hiding behind the flag all too often. This appears to be a much more blatant example than anything I've seen from the GOP.

UPDATE: Even the photo at the top of the page is suspect. Fred, in the comments, notes that the people cheering with fists upraised comes from a stock-photo website.

Now, is it unfair to the DNC that their website managers can't figure out what a US soldier looks like? Is it that difficult to find stock images of US soldiers in the same database? I don't think so. [Read More]
