WAR OF WORDS

The Sinclair Broadcast Group is barring its seven ABC-affiliated stations from airing tonight's Nightline tribute to fallen U.S. troops because it says the special "appears to be motivated by a political agenda designed to undermine the efforts of the United States in Iraq." ABC defends the broadcast as "an expression of respect which simply seeks to honor those who have laid down their lives for this country."
