Urban myth me thinks
The oldest of old Urban Myths and has been done to death. Sorry.
sorry about that, i'v only just heard it,
Apparently there is no General Reinwald with the US Marine Corps
The U.S. Army denies that there is a Lieutenant General Reinwald and chalks the whole thing up as a hoax. (Which is as logic dictated all along; if an armed forces spokesperson ever gave voice to a sexist remark likening a female interviewer to a prostitute, that officer would soon be called upon to make a very public apology as well as face charges within ranks for conduct unbecoming.)
National Public Radio had this to say about the matter:
We are aware of an erroneous story posted on the Free Republic Website, and possibly elsewhere, which mentions a supposed interview between an unnamed NPR reporter and a U.S Army Lieutenant General Reinwald. The story is false â the dialogue mentioned was not an NPR interview, and it never aired on any NPR program.
