The Stone directed ad, which airs nationwide on CNN Thursday, features
an impassioned interview with Bruhns as he attacks the administration's
treatment of soldiers. Kovic provides voiceover for the ad.
"I feel that my patriotism has been used and exploited," says former US

I'm very disappointed in the civilian leadership and administration for
sending us needlessly into combat."
