Ours, Not Theirs

CBSnews.com currently has a link to the 60 Minutes interview with President Bush on its main sidebar and I just finished watching it. I found much about interviewer Scott Pelley's tone, approach and characterization irritating. But there are really no words to describe my reaction to hearing him say the following to President Bush:

I was on the battlefield in Najaf when al-Sadr's people killed your Marines.

And seconds later:
Your military officers say that Iranian agents--today--are killing American troops on the ground in Iraq.

Scott Pelley was born and raised in America, an American citizen.

"Your Marines."

"Your military officers."

Doesn't that little pronoun make all the difference in the world? I think I'm going to be ill...
