Lt. John Oliveira, a former navy public affairs officer who oversaw embedded journalists on the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt criticized Bush administration policies in Iraq. Oliveira said. "I had to get on television every day to talk to the American people and the international public and continue to sell them on the administration's policies, which I did not believe in…I'm [now] doing what I can to support our troops. Up until two months ago, I was one of those troops. I was unable to voice my opinion regarding the administration policies on how they were using our military. And one of the key things I say to Mr. Bush, 'support our troops and join us.' Because the way he's doing it is not supporting our troops, it's using them." [1]
