Of how insulated our politicians are to the grim realities and futility of war, until its brought into their face.

Panetta is a traitor and guilty of second-degree manslaughter

It is a shame this kind of gross negligence in the very highest echelons of the "Defense" Department go unpunished.

Time to start pressing charges against the Government!

R.I.P. to another soldier lost. My heart goes out to his family.

Glad the congressman is waking up. Better late than never I guess.

Ugh...

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

while i can't tell what is in the heart

of congressman young, it is election season, i implore all enlisted men to make a point of introducing themselves to their "representatives" if it is at all possible. apparently mr. young has no problem sending faceless soldiers to their death.
