Col. Oliver North, "Col. Ollie" to many who have served under him, tells of a situation when we first went into Iraq. There were enemies shooting at each other from across a large field. That was a no-man’s land. And in the middle of that field was a very injured Iraqi man.

A corpsman crawled out to the man and dragged him back behind the American troops so he could work on him. A foreign correspondent asked the medic what kind of an idiot he was. He said, "Can’t you see that is an Iraqi?" Col. North said the corpsman looked up at the correspondent and yelled, "Yeah! I see him. But can you see he’s injured? We are Americans. That is what we do!"
