Bush KNEW Webb's son almost died in Iraq last week!

SHOCKING UPDATE TO BUSH-WEBB EXCHANGE:
Webb’s son Jimmy was almost killed last week when the jeep next to him was blown up killing three marines. It appears that Bush KNEW Webb’s son was almost killed and that prompted his snarky “How’s your boy?”
Here are some sources for this:
In the words of Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) who cites “very reliable sources”, “Not only did Bush know about it, he was specifically briefed on the incident before meeting with Webb, and was cautioned to be extra sensitive in speaking with Webb about his son.”
Whatever the facts, we honor the service of Marine Jim Webb Jr. We would never call this honorable Marine who almost died last month a “boy.”
