PTSD from ThatIraqiThingiePooh....

About one in six combat troops returning from Iraq have suffered at least one concussion in the war, injuries that, while fleeting, could heighten their risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder, researchers are reporting.

The study, given early release on Wednesday by The New England Journal of Medicine, is the military’s first large-scale attempt to gauge the effect of mild head injuries — concussions, many of them from roadside blasts — which some experts worry may be causing a host of unrecognized neurological deficits.

But isn't the new england journal of medicine one of those pro-science cliques who are willing to allow science stuff to trump divine will????

And besides, isn't it truthier that PTSD IS ONLY CAUSED BY THE EVILS OF LIBERALISM, and has nothing to do with patriotic americans who are at this very moment valiantly restoring the wetlands of Iraq for the TreeHuggerInChief!!!
