Images of Lynch, England Reflect U.S. Opinion of War

Jack Lule, professor of journalism at Lehigh, was quoted in two articles about the war in Iraq. The vividly contrasting images of American soldiers Jessica Lynch and Lynndie England, one portrayed as a heroic victim and the other as depraved villain, symbolize the souring of U.S. opinion of the Iraq war, experts say. Between the time Lynch was rescued from an Iraqi hospital in April 2003 and England was revealed posing in pictures of prison abuse at Abu Ghraib this spring, public opinion has traveled a parallel path from hopeful to skeptical over the American role in Iraq, they say. "How the war has been going is being portrayed particularly by those two women," said Lule. It's amazing how much symbolism is packed into those photos," he said.
