Wednesday, November 30, 2005 Yanks Brit Ad

CNS News reports that has "yanked" the Thanksgiving ad which they misidentified American soldiers by flashing a picture of British troops.

A spokesman with the U.S. Defense Department stated the fatigues and the meal containers do not match anything in service with the American military.

I checked and you can still view the ad on's website. Meanwhile, I checked out the press release for the ad and noted this section describing images of the British soldiers.

for·lorn - Appearing sad or lonely because deserted or abandoned.
The British soldiers were probably forlorn because all the American soldiers were off eating turkey for Thanksgiving.
